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?

Somehow I did miss all of it, and all other prefixes bother me also. I dislike the names iTunes and iPhoto just as much as I dislike KOffice and KRunner.

I don't mind it when they come up with a regular name that happens to have a K in it, like Amarok or Okular or even Kaffeine. I just think it's sloppy when names only consist of a generic terms prefixed by a letter.
