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.

RE[5]: Why no GNOME Perspective?

Member since:

I seem to have a different perspective. I just don't think they were being particularly helpful. The gnome developers were focussing on silly details like api naming that everyone agreed would have to be changed.

They did not provide use cases or solid justification for their stated positions. Nor did they at any point say "look this simply does not work for us, how about doing it this way..."

The whole point of the discussion was to flesh out the specification and get others to join in. AFAIK that is what canonical did when the spec was first created.
