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?

Don't forget that PC-BSD has had KDE as its default desktop for over three years now, and it has quite possibly the easiest entry barrier for new users of any UNIX distribution so long as you aren't trying to run it on a laptop. 7.1 is shaping up to be a fine release, and will run KDE 4.2 on top of FreeBSD 7.2.
