KDE Just over a year ago, Tim Butler wrote an article which outlined why he thought the GNOME Project was clearly the free software desktop project with the best vision of the future. KDE's Appeal Project, which has been brewing for some time now, looks to a different set of issues that need solving and has some very smart minds at work on solving those problems. In a few words, KDE's got some of "that vision thing" too, according to Tim.

You would have to be a complete idiot to think that the "vast majority" are using KDE based on an online poll,

That's funny. I still don't see any online polls declaring Gnome to be the most popular Linux/Unix desktop. I suppose all those evil KDE users have found a way to vote three or four times each. Damn those people!

but hey you're just being a loser fanboy as usual, so no surprise there.

Oh dear. Poor you.

OSNews had one. I guess that doesn't count though. I guess unless its officially sanctioned by dot.kde.org it only counts.

Oh dear. Poor you.

I know it sucks that you have become so emotionally attached to KDE that you aren't able to think clearly about the license situation.

Well since the Desktop Consortium one was actually open long enough for people to vote......

I guess unless its officially sanctioned by dot.kde.org it only counts.

Don't recall dot.kde having a poll, controlling one or there being any controversy about them being ivolved in voter fraud with the Desktop Consortium or similar ones.

that you aren't able to think clearly about the license situation.

Since all you think about is licensing and developing for nothing (which users out there, suprise, surprise don't care about) that's pretty funny.
