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.

That's the way it is. Shuttleworth needs to quit whining when others decide not to follow him. If Shuttleworth doesn't like the way GNOME is handling things, he's free to switch Ubuntu to KDE if he wishes.

Actually, Shuttleworth created Unity for precisely this reason. His only disagreement is with GNOMEshell. WRT whining, he's getting regularly attacked by people in the GNOME camp for not using GNOMEshell, so restating the reasons for not using GNOMEshell is appropriate.

Personally, I haven't tried either Unity or GNOMEshell, but from what I've seen I don't look forward to either. I am glad there are alternatives. Let the best shell win. I am willing to give both a try, but if neither work for me, KDE4 doesn't either so I'll go for XFCE since it has always "just worked".
