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.

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.

Well you provided quotes from Aaron (kde) and Mark (ubuntu) and none from any gnome developers involved in this issue. How can you pretend this is balanced?

Totally agree with you Mystilleef. It's sad to see some of your comments voted down when the points you made were perfectly valid. The STFU response from Thom was also pretty dissapointing.

This piece can only be described as opinion. It comes down hard on Gnome, and definitely does not present their side of the story in any way.

While I happen to agree that Gnome is in the wrong on this issue, authors have to decide when writing a piece like this whether they are going to provide opinion (which is fine), or balanced news.

The distinction between the two is rarely, if ever, made on OSNews.

1. Dave Neary's blog posting is in both those links.

2. They don't want to respond for obvious reasons.

3. They have made their feelings clear in the comments on those blog entries - they claim that things that others had said had been agreed never took place and that's all. Have a read.

4. They hope this will all kind of go away by giving vague answers.
