X11, Window Managers In 2002, both KDE and GNOME released their last major revisions; KDE released KDE 3.0 on 3rd April, while GNOME followed shortly after with GNOME 2.0 on 27th June. For the Linux desktop, therefore, 2002 was an important year. Since then, we have continiously been fed point releases which added bits of functionaility and speed improvements, but no major revision has yet seen the light of day. What's going on?

Hmmm. same happened to me, critizised Thom for not doing proper research and got modded down to -5 within 30 sec. I think it was actually Thom sitting there and "manipulating the moderation system". Hmmm i guess this is one way of dealing with "unwanted" comments ... isn't there a word for it ...

He did it again: the comment you were replying has been modded down to -5. What can I say, it's not even worth replying to the guy: he doesn't seem able to answer or exercise any of his (supposedly) editorial duties.

I'm confident you'll grow up, though, Thom. Eventually.

Get over yourself. Personal attacks [1] on the editorial staff are AGAINST our rules. That's CRYSTAL CLEAR. You are on OUR website, so you behave to OUR rules. There is absolutely no justification in calling me a troll [2] [3] just because I happen to dare to criticize KDE and GNOME. I have not attacked anyone personally, and yet you feel the need to do so against me.

YOU need to grow up and learn that NOT everyone who criticizes Linux/KDE/GNOME is a troll.
