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.

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.

If you were taken the time to understand the structure of the article you would see that the two times KDE was praised were on the two paragraphs that detailed the DEFICIENCIES of Gnome. Praising KDE at these two times DOES NOT MEAN that on all the rest of points KDE prevails or not. KDE is mentioned there to simply help make the case for these two gnome problems. This article is not a full comparison of the two DEs. But having used both, as a normal user, I still prefer Gnome over any other X11 DE. You are free to disagree and submit a comparison review.

Hey,

Don't get me wrong. I was simply agreeing with ralph. And you are welcome to disagree with both of us. We're simply the readers. What do we know?

"If you were taken the time to understand the structure of the article"

I read it over a few times to try to understand your summary paragraph. I couldn't. Maybe I am dumb.

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.
