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, at least that is at last being acknowledged now. I've simply got sick of people portraying Freedesktop specs as somehow all being Gnome originated and this terrible double standard of where if you interoperate with Gnome somehow you're being 'cross desktop' friendly. The reverse never seems to be expected.

It's something disturbing that has gone on for the best part of the last decade, and I'd say it has materially harmed, perhaps irretrievably, the perception of Linux and free software on the desktop and ensured that we always seem to be in a political mess.
