Gnome Honest question. Do you think the GNOME project is as healthy today as it was, say, 4 years ago? Benjamin Otte explains that no, it isn't. GNOME lacks developers, goals, mindshare and users. The situation as he describes it, is a lot more dire than I personally thought.

Personally, my biggest beef with KDE4 is plasma. It's buggy as hell, and they opted to build core components of the DE with it! Madness!

Also, a minor annoyance with kde is that from a designer standpoint, everything seems designed with oxygen in mind. It seems that application designer has utilized oxygen-only features in the designs, and when other styles is applied, it just looks bad.
IMHO an application should always be built with UI engine that is as "vanilla" as possible, sort of with a lowest common denominator as possible in mind, and then the style developers should build on that, not the other way around.
