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.

Though I disagree with Linus on some of his kernel design choices he is still a reasonable guy and openly admits to being a dictator. He takes an honest position which I can respect.

Shuttleworth on the other hand is a Mac fan who would like to turn Linux into a Mac-junior all while talking about the value of his precious community that he usually ignores.

He revealed his true stripes to everyone with that Banshee incident. I don't see why so many still want to give him a break. He hasn't pushed Linux into the mainstream. Ubuntu has just become the de facto Gnome distro for geeks and their grandmas.
