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.

One thing I'm missing from these discussions is how exactly does the current Gnome Shell implement app notifications.

Does it have them at all? If they are implemented, what features do they use that couldn't be done if the KDE/Canonical/Freedesktop spec was being used? If the Freedesktop spec is lacking in functionality, then would it be possible to change it to add whatever the Gnome Shell needs to work?

Instead of technical issues like these being discussed, there just seems to be a lot of naming calling. Just because cooperation failed for whatever reason a year or two ago, I don't see any reason for the parties involved to just give up.
