Gnome Only a few days ago, we ran an article on the future of KDE and GNOME, and which of the two had the brighter future based on their developmental processes. Barely has that discussion ended, or the GNOME engineering team comes with a pretty daunting plan to introduce a fairly massive reworking of the GNOME interface for GNOME 3.0 (2.30). Read on for the details.

I will NEVER EVER(!) forget how KDE has screwed up my Powerpoint presentation because it has not managed to connect to the beamer; and no, X has nothing to do with it. Of course I have tried if the beamer works fine with my notebook setup before (two times!). But as it came to the actual presentation nothing worked. Fortunately I had a good old paper backup of my presentation... But the nicely prepared presentation was screwed up - by KDE!

Again, it wasn't any nerdy tinker game. I was the stuff I do to pay my rent - screwed up by KDE. So long to the reliability of KDE. An now hate me because I don't like you favorite toy!

Dude, you're a bona fide troll. Fair enough, connecting to a projector (if that's what you actually mean) is difficult at the best of times, certainly with Linux, but to present yourself as knowledgable enough to know that the fault is somehow with KDE is just trolling. Plain and simple. No matter, it's what we've come to expect over the past few months.

I've never, NEVER EVER had Mac OS X or Windows fail when it comes to connecting to a projector, and I've used a lot of those things the past ~9-10 years.

It will always remain a mystery to me why something so mundane as plugging in a 2nd monitor is such a big thing for Linux. It's not like we're asking for world peace.
