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.

most open source projects would really benefit from some criticism, abuse, and perhaps a few flying coffee mugs from a tyrannical designer with attitude.

good design is about attitude (among other things)! i use gnome because of their 'attitude', as you put it. it's a design attitude that prevents gnome from releasing the kind of junk ui/ux that you see in most open source efforts. they take the process of design seriously. i can't think of any other open source effort that has as much design intelligence and design integrity as Gnome. KDE and Ubuntu come up with lots of clever engineering and widgety things but their design just sucks.
