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.

RE: Desktop Linux

I am not happy at all with the status of desktop Linux.
I categorically refuse to use KDE 4.
KDE 3.5, which was the best DE ever, of any OS, is hardly available.

I am compelled to use Gnome, but I am not 100% satisfied either.

Way to ignore user needs and to kill desktop Linux.
Well done, people.

And that is probably why proprietary OSes thrive. They can't afford to say: "who cares about users"

Right click on a KDE4 desktop, click "Desktop Settings", click "Unlock Widgets", on Layout choose "Folder View" and you have the same desktop you had on KDE 3.5 and more.

It's not killing a desktop, it's called moving on and advancing the technology. Get over it and adapt yourself.
