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.

Well, you might want to read the comments. Jeff Waughn came in guns blazing and called Mark a liar without any specifics but a promise to dig up some dirt more later to prove his point. Then he went on to drive the discussion on Aaron's blog offtopic by blathering about timelines, posts from 3 years ago as well as insisting on discussing who said what at a conference in 2008. Finally, he managed to degenerate the discussion into a flamewar. If Jeff's antics are any indication of the way GNOME will deal with the issue, I think we may have to give up any hope of getting them working with the larger FLOSS community (and freedesktop.org).


I'd not blame Jeff exclusively on that - by my reading, half the participants (including both Jeff and Mark) were behaving like squabbling kids in the kindergarten playground. None of them setting a particularly good example of leadership...
