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.

yes witch hunt is bad but what could GNOME developers do if the effort in course was done privately?, become Canonical employees to have access to those discussions?, or wait until the code dump is thrown in their faces, accept it!!!. If GNOME developers decided to implement something resembling what Canonical was doing in closed doors, I do not blame them

robmv, that is one of the *reasons* GNOME won't accept any wrong doing for *NOT* collaborating, but certainly not a *valid* reason at all for not working together, regardless if those were *DONE* in private, the effort of collaboration should be high given to promote the use of Linux on the desktop, and thus collaborating between DEs is a must to make it easy for application developers! Note: ISVs(gaming, productivity suites,etc) are the most critical component of the Linux desktop, and that compromise should *have* been made. Look, just run KDE apps on the GNOME, it's not native looking, that is an example of not collaborating, very far away from the *private* argument.
