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?

Yer, but as much as I've had a go at Mono around here, purely from a developer point of view, what else on Earth are they going to use? Like it or lump it, Mono is currently the path of least resistance to creating anything remotely functional with Gnome or GTK today. Beyond that, there is nothing there for developers that is acceptable.

For now I would agree with you. Right now Mono is the best path for rapid development of Gnome/Gtk apps. Maybe Vala will change that soon.
