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.

Gnome removes features for who knows how long due to them being "confusing" or "user-unfriendly". And now... Gnome refuses to add *new* features due to good ol' Not Invented Here syndrome. Gnome, seriously, get your shit together. Quit acting like a proprietary, for-profit software vendor, a.k.a. Microsoft/Apple. I thought the whole f***ing point of free and open source software was to share ideas? I've been using Gnome for a while now, but it looks like the time to ditch it is drawing nearer and nearer every day.
