Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y If you were, you know, living your lives, you've probably missed it, but old fires are burning brightly once again: there's somewhat of a falling-out going on between KDE and GNOME, with Canonical siding squarely with... KDE. The issue seems to revolve around GNOME's lack of collaboration, as explained by KDE's Aaron Seigo.

A gnome developers perspective:

(Not the project's perspective, but that of an individual.)

Good job. It's good to see a balanced perspective. It seems this post by osnews is skewed to vilify GNOME developers.


Oh go boo-hooing somewhere else.

Cry me a fricking river.

No, this post was good and that response was quite short sighted.

Surely working upstream is good. I would never say Canonical did it right. But let's stay realistic: GNOME would never accept something developed somewhere else, yes? Like Nautilus, maybe? or Evolution?

Both sides made mistakes and Holwerda is very right in pointing that out.

lol, you just made another side to the point.

as a spectator after reading everything i can only say this

damn... i wish these people were hot babes fighting in the mud located few feet away from me while i am lying on the couch and drinking beer.

one wants to be steve jobs of FOSS and actually believes he knows the road to heaven. ones have one and the only truth. and one is just ranting to put more oil on the fire between the first two.

boohoo, cry me a river. make competing desktops where everyone supports as many distros as possible and let users decide which one is the best. then... if you lose, admit and support the winner by contributing to his project instead of yours

on personal note... seeing unity, i was disappointed. last thing i want is broken design. and even more so osx like menu. i also hate osx like pinned dialogs in g-s, but they are easy to disable. currently, on my desktop, g-s is winning, while kde never had even the slightest chance

Do you really love those icons in the dash when you have 20 windows all over your workspaces in GNOME Shell???? Please explain, those icons will get smaller and smaller, explain please why GS is better.
