Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y And over the weekend, the saga regarding Canonical, GNOME, and KDE has continued. Lots of comments all over the web, some heated, some well-argued, some wholly indifferent. Most interestingly, Jeff Waugh and Dave Neary have elaborated on GNOME's position after the initial blog posts by Shuttleworth and Seigo, providing a more coherent look at GNOME's side of the story.

That seems to be the only solution.

I am loosing faith in the Linux community. Everywhere I turn within the different Linux communities there are enormous egos fighting each other. Personally I think that Gnome looks like the bad guy in this, which is sad. However, pointing to KDE for good example is just plain stupid. Everyone already forgot the "fuck you" attitude of Aaron Seigo during the first KDE4 release (no offense man, you do write good software)? It made me switch to Gnome, and now I don't know where to turn if Gnome don't get their shit together.

I am indeed loosing faith. Forget the egos and politics, and just stick to writing good software!
