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.

It may well require a slight touch of paranoia to suggest that GNOME Shell folks were afraid of competition so they deliberately implemented an incompatible systray/notification area. They may simply have been so caught up in getting things done they forgot or ignored the fact that there were other folks trying to implement a cross-desktop systray/notification spec. It was, at minimum, careless.

The hope now is that the community can start working together to fix this particular issue and fix/prevent other issues.
