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.

If you read the freedesktop mailing-list archive, you will see that when the spec was proposed, GNOME devs were interested but asked for some changes, which were refused...

Sigh.......

Alas, I think we can guess why. Gnome developers asked for changing thinking they probably wouldn't get done, and when they were they simply didn't accept what they hoped wouldn't be coded in the first place.
