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.

Hey Aaron, if you're reading this... what's the use case for rotating a plasma widget? I haven't come up with one that isn't a gimmick. And I'd still like to be able to shrink/iconify a folder view and/or activity to a single widget. ;)

I'm not Aaron but I believe that's a functionality they added for form factors like touch displays, etc. So you can move widgets as you wish with your hands, and rotate them, etc.
