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.

Le sigh ;)

KDE 4.0 was never marked stable. It was marked "Developer Preview". 4.1 was the first "stable" release of KDE for non-devs to use.

Must we really go over this every single time someone mentions KDE 4.0??


As an end user, I really do not know that until today. If I recall correctly, I am using Fedora at that time when I first heard of the released and install it because I am so excited with KDE4, only to be disappointed. Anyway, this is an information gap, maybe I have to read more if there are software releases that promises big changes or revolutionary changes.

For the GNOME 3.0's release, I think I have done enough for now, as I am testing it on and off. ;)
Unlike KDE4, GNOME Shell is consistent for being stable even for early releases, except of course for some slow downs, but it is stable. For all this drama, regardless of who is at fault, GNOME developers deserve the respect for making GNOME Shell a possibility.

Allan
