Gnome Only a few days ago, we ran an article on the future of KDE and GNOME, and which of the two had the brighter future based on their developmental processes. Barely has that discussion ended, or the GNOME engineering team comes with a pretty daunting plan to introduce a fairly massive reworking of the GNOME interface for GNOME 3.0 (2.30). Read on for the details.

Gnome doesn't have to be GTK, and QT != KDE. There is no doubting that it would be a large effort to rewrite applications for a different framework, but there's not reason not to have a meaningful discussion about doing so.

I think a lot of people would appreciate standardising on one toolkit. For a start, it would give a cleaner environment, it would allow more code to be shared be shared between KDE and GNOME, and it would make lives easier for those who currently try to get their applications to work with both GTK and QT.

It doesn't stop GNOME and KDE still going their separate ways!
