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.

In an era when you have the top tablet maker talking "Post PC" - linux didn't even reach that level of recognition in the first place.


Ever heard of Android?

The shift to web apps only makes the problem worse as the linux desktop solves a problem that Microsoft solved a long time ago, and it does it in a more painful fashion.


What do you mean a long time ago. *cough* IE6,7,8 are all a piece of sh**. Only with the release of IE9 will they catch up...

Also if you're so into web apps Chrome is built on top of (you guessed it) *Linux*...

Also I would like to point out that not everybody enjoys web development.
