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?

Slackware, Mandriva, OpenSuse, PCLinuxOS, Ark Linux, Red Flag Linux, Pardux Linux, Alt Linux - besides Red Hat "the desktop is not important" and Ubuntu "We do marketing before anything else", KDE is still going strong. Asia, Russia, South America, Turkey and East Europe - 90% of the linux desktops you'll find there are KDE based. How about 50 million Brazil users in one deployment? The Russian school system will move to KDE desktops, the turkish government doesn't sponsor a KDE-only distro for nothing etc etc...
