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.

I'm a lot more interested in responses by developers involved in these discussions on the mailing lists, forums and bug reports.

Comments in blogs are usually opinionated noise.

Mark claims that libappindicator was proposed to GNOME and rejected. I can't find any entries for this in the gnome mailing list.

Aaron's discussion with the GNOME developers about the notification specification has already been posted somewhere in this thread. It's a far cry from GNOME developers being elitist. As a matter of fact, very real software engineering issues were raised.

However, I'm tired of all this. It's a waste of my time.
