X11, Window Managers Even though some users of the two desktops take every opportunity to make fun or flat-out attack one another, it is no secret to more reasonable people that the KDE and GNOME projects strive to make their respective desktops interoperate, and that the developers working on either of the two projects have a great deal of respect for one another. This has lead to an attempt to jointly organise the desktops' flagship conferences, in one place, in 2009.

I am a new linux user and while i have screamed at the computer at times, I'm with you. Linux should not pretend to be a consumer OS. It is not and if it tries to, it will turn off the existing user base and it still won't be the consumer OS of some people's dreams. A total lose lose situation.

Linux should be the "completely whatever you want it to be OS" That's what makes it so interesting even if it drives people crazy. Other OS's can be for consumer use.
