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?

" Where KDE has better technology, though, GNOME has proven stability, and backing from Red Hat, Novell, Sun... Granted, KDE now benefits from Nokia purchasing Trolltech, but I'm betting there's more money in GNOME.


Possibly so. That is why it is being "pushed" ... especially the inclusion of Mono into GNOME. Monied interests behind that, no doubt.

Yes, because we all have this aversion to money and commercial interests.
