Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Any discussion about GNOME vs. KDE is sure to end in tears. It's basically impossible to discuss which of these two Free desktop environments is better than the other, mostly because they cater to different types of people, with different needs and expectatotions. As such, Bruce Byfield decided to look at the two platforms from a different perspective: if we consider their developmental processes, which of the two is most likely to be more successful in the coming years?

"I tried 2 days ago the latest version of KDE4, im not pleased at all."
An update to the beta of kubuntu 9.04 I was using made the system unbootable (something to do with udev and the kernel version) so I spend the day working on another PC running ubuntu 8.04. I was not pleased at all.

What's my point? None, other then personal experience from ones own biased perspective are not all that useful.

Its a beta. It will break. Get used to it.

If you want stable ... wait for it to be released before you run it.

even so...It would be great if there was a distro that had kde 1st class and gnome 2nd. There are plenty in the reverse (and yes, kubuntu doesn't count).

All distros that put effort and major support into kde all advertise that they are desktop env. agnostic. It may just be that the reality is that they need to support gnome to have any chance at things like enterprise, but still, it would be nice...

That kubuntu broke wasn't my point, read again.

The ubuntu I used AFTER the beta broke wasn't beta.
