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?

Well, at least most of KDE is not named K-something any more. Now we have Plasma (krunner/kdesktop/kpanel), Oxygen, Dolphin (konqueror), Dragon Player (kaffeine), dbus (kparts), Okular (kpdf)...

The K-name thing gets extremely irksome. And those weirdo messages like "Kalumi stopped working", or whatever? WTF is that supposed to mean?

They have found some good K-names, though. "Okular" and "Krita" are great. Maybe they could change "Kstars" for "Kuasar"... I'll suggest that.
