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.

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.

Where did he point that out? It seemed to me he concluded GNOME was at fault and sided with KDE and Ubuntu in the matter.

Well, GNOME IS at fault here and they refuse to acknowledge that. Canonical is also at fault and Mark has acknowledged that in his blog post - at least to some extend. There is a lot more they have to do (their policy of doing all development on Launchpad, copyright assignment etc is quite harmful) but let's see how that works out...

I can't figure out anything KDE did wrong in this whole thing - except maybe put in too much effort in cooperating in the face of sure rejection (again) or not exposing what was going on earlier.
