Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y And over the weekend, the saga regarding Canonical, GNOME, and KDE has continued. Lots of comments all over the web, some heated, some well-argued, some wholly indifferent. Most interestingly, Jeff Waugh and Dave Neary have elaborated on GNOME's position after the initial blog posts by Shuttleworth and Seigo, providing a more coherent look at GNOME's side of the story.

I think that Microsoft, Google or Apple are largely indifferent Gnome / KDE or Unity ... the Linux Desktop is (at the moment) just not a serious threat to them (now the mobile space with Linux/Android etc. is a different matter). And before I am shot down ... I use Linux/Gnome exclusively, am very happy with it and think personally it to be a better desktop OS than Windows 7 (not sure of Mac OSX, haven't really used it and am not prepared to pay the apple premium) ... I just think that there is not the mindshare in the general public in terms of Linux to be real threat ...
