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 don't think there has been a single story about KDE on OSNews, Slashdot, Ars Technica or pretty much anywhere that did not have a thread or two with people complaining about the k prefix. (Which, after all, is just the conventional way of naming applications used on Unix in the last decade of the previous millennium, when KDE was started.)

I don't doubt there were people complaining but I missed all of it because I don't usually frequent Linux/KDE discussion forums. I only read the articles on Ars, never the comments. I don't read Slashdot at all and I have only recently began to read the comments on OSnews due to having a bit more free time.
