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.

If GNOME removes the minimize buttons everyone criticizes them for it (despite the fact that it was a sensible choice) but when they refuse to cooperate, making things actually worse for the users - it is their right to do that?!?

Of course it's their right to do that, as it is your right in Japan to go Whale fishing and I bet there are countries where seal clubbing is legal too. Doesn't mean it's the right thing to do!

I rather criticize them for both decisions ;) I will definitely not like having those buttons removed and several other "features" being introduced in GNOME3, and even though I haven't bothered reading all the replies in those mailing list threads about this current topic I can't help but feel slightly disappointed in GNOME devs.
