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 agree to an extent: have just this weekend returned to KDE after several years of using GNOME at home (I still use it on a work-based machine, just in case anyone thinks I am being wilfully partisan). I had moved away from KDE as a disgruntled 3.5 user who wasn't able to get over himself. I understood that KDE has been developing so thought I would give it a go. So far, I am happily surprised - someone above called it a 'Windows clone' but interestingly I have installed a KDE-based distro on account of two days of hair-pulling realisation that a lot of the foibles of Vista are still buried in W7 - and in that sense, what's wrong with a Windows clone with some genetic augmentation ;) !

Equally however this new experience of KDE means a lesson for me when it comes to evaluating GNOME 3 - count to twenty (or more), listen to the arguments (not your own cherished opinions), and try to work with what there is, instead of going off in a huff!
