Gnome The Gnome Project released version 2.12 yesterday. We had a quick look at it by using the latest Gnome Live CD (1.12-pre) and Foresight 0.9.0 (2.12 final) and here are our thoughts over 2.12 and Gnome's status in general.

All in all I agree with this review, however, why the author thought it was a good idea to flame KDE in a Gnome review is simply beyond me.

Flame KDE? I simply mentioned it and compared it. I don't see where the "flaming" is, in fact the first two times I mentioned its name on the article I gave it the upper hand on the specific issue discussed in the paragraph!

I think you are too touchy and you can't see the words "gnome" and "kde" on the same article.

"Flame KDE? I simply mentioned it and compared it."
That's exactly my point, you didn't compre it at all, you simply declared Gnome to be king.

"I think you are too touchy and you can't see the words "gnome" and "kde" on the same article."
Maybe I am, but I'm just so sick of all these stupid Gnome vs. KDE flamewars and I think the way you mentioned KDE in your review will inevitably lead to one, even though I'm sure that wasn't your intention.

Although I have no comments on the item of flaming, I would like to say your comment back seems a bit out of place. I do believe you should defend your article but the last sentence was a bit of place.

But who am I to be telling an OSN Staff member what to do. ;)

I do not understand why he claims Gnome is the best X11 desktop when wherever compared to KDE he gave it the upper hand.

Pardon? I thought the review was quite fair, and was pretty favourable to KDE about the way it treats its developers and gives them the tools they need. In short, both desktops have different things to work on in different areas.
