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.

Gnome 2.12 is the best X11 DE there is.

What does that make KDE? Second best?

I wouldn't go picking favorites, if I were you, unless you want to start a flamewar.

I love how you insist this is a flame. It'd give more respect if you quoted the full sentence.

"But having used both, as a normal user, I still prefer Gnome over any other X11 DE."

Now let's break this down. "But having used both." meaning the experience is there with both of the Desktop Environments that are being discussed here, KDE and Gnome. "as a normal user" this implying someone who can sit down and do their work, whether that's browsing the net, writing an article or email. "I still prefer Gnome over any other X11 DE" Now, notice that it wasn't just against KDE, but a preference over all other X11 DEs.

What's wrong with picking favorites? Just because I like Cinderella more than I like Guns and Roses, doesn't mean that I'm a bad person, or that I shouldn't write an article on how I prefer the sound of Tom Keifer's voice better than the sound of Axl Rose.

It sounds to me like you're just an idiot who is trying to start a flamewar more than anything. So just chill out and take what is meant by that sentence. I prefer Gnome over KDE too, for my own reasons. Does that mean I'm trying to start a flamewar?
