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.

They won't do what we want! *cries* I agree with the poster above, that's what happens in an open ecosystem like this. Maybe Canonical and KDE think the appindicators and Unity are a good idea, but maybe the GNOME folks don't. That's the way it is. Shuttleworth needs to quit whining when others decide not to follow him.

disclaimer: I am not for Ubuntu or any distro, this is only my opinion based on my reading of facts.

Whose whining first? The folks who accuse Canonical for not contributing back to the Kernel, and now morphed into Banshee then to appindicator and Unity.

Please follow the relevant blogs, I see that the GNOME folks were at fault first for not collaborating on the open(freedesktop.org) despite of their _DENIAL_.
