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.

GNOME developers

The GNOME developers are the one who made GNOME with their hard work. They are not perfect and they have their ego but without them there would be no GNOME at all and Qt would still be proprietary. GNOME with less interoperability is better than no GNOME at all. I believe we should acknowledge that they are doing good work before we criticize. "Thank you for the good work, would it be possible to work with freedesktop.org on this pretty please" is way better than "God damn developers, you suck for not implementing that feature, losers"

No, really?

Sorry to rain on your parade but there's no cause-effect relationship here.
