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.

Unfortunately, in this case their perspective is wrong. They were initially open to the idea, made requests to change some things in the spec, many of which were done in order to accommodate gnome. Some things were not changed but were justified technically by kde, whereupon the gnome devs stopped replying...

Then later said no we don't want this, it does not fit with our vision. It could have been made to fit but they chose to ignore it.
