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.

[q]They said the freedesktop org spec couldn't possibly work, which might well be a reasonable opinion for all I know.[q/]

Since KDE and Unity is actually using it the spec obviously works. That's not saying it works in the context of the gnome-shell though but it would seem like a design problem to me if data and presentation can't be separated.
