Re: Childish?

I don't think it's a childish opinion to want KDE and Gnome gone.

KDE and Gnome won't be gone. This is about Gnome and how much effort it takes to maintain it for a distro.

I doubt Ubuntu will move to KDE ever.

I agree with you there. People may do things with KDE stuff, but why should it really?

In my opinion 1 app for 1 purpose is sort of against how KDE works. KDE is flooded with options on everything. Even the clock has a bunch of preference tabs.

Nope, that's not how it works but how it's worked out. KDE has some work to do to streamline this by default.
