Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y If you were, you know, living your lives, you've probably missed it, but old fires are burning brightly once again: there's somewhat of a falling-out going on between KDE and GNOME, with Canonical siding squarely with... KDE. The issue seems to revolve around GNOME's lack of collaboration, as explained by KDE's Aaron Seigo.

They won't do what we want! *cries* I agree with the poster above, that's what happens in an open ecosystem like this. Maybe Canonical and KDE think the appindicators and Unity are a good idea, but maybe the GNOME folks don't. That's the way it is. Shuttleworth needs to quit whining when others decide not to follow him. This isn't iOS where everything needs approval from someone else, this is an open system. If Shuttleworth doesn't like the way GNOME is handling things, he's free to switch Ubuntu to KDE if he wishes. Quite honestly, I don't really care what he does since I use Arch anyway, but he sure seems to complain too much.
Funny thing is, my GNOME installation on ARch is way more stable *without* Canonical's additions. Maybe that has something to do with GNOME's reluctance?
