Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Any discussion about GNOME vs. KDE is sure to end in tears. It's basically impossible to discuss which of these two Free desktop environments is better than the other, mostly because they cater to different types of people, with different needs and expectatotions. As such, Bruce Byfield decided to look at the two platforms from a different perspective: if we consider their developmental processes, which of the two is most likely to be more successful in the coming years?

RE[2]: There is no argument

"There's nothing at all to argue about. Install GnomeDo on any desktop environment and you never need anything else. GnomeDo ftw

I think GnomeDo is one of the strongest reasons not to use Gnome. It's based on Mono. What's the point in running .NET stuff on Linux? If you want to run .NET stuff better use Windows.
Why go for the surrogate (Mono) when you can use the real thing (.NET)?

Mono is not .NET. I am sick and tired of hearing this BS line. Mono is C# and the CLR with its own libraries. .NET compatibility is included but nobody develops .NET applications on Linux. They develop Mono applications. Mono hatred is based on ignorance and nothing else. GnomeDO, Banshee, Beagle, F-Spot, and other first class Mono applications share only the C# language and the CLR with Microsoft's product and they are both ECMA standards. Class libraries are entirely different and they are the bulk of what makes up Mono.
