Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

"Now a decade later, KDE and GNOME are still going their separate ways, unable to agree on anything."

Actually, and stripped of your hyperbole, KDE and GNOME have agreed on a whole lot of things.

Yes Rly!!!

"KDE and GNOME have agreed on a whole lot of things" does not mean "KDE and GNOME have agreed everything".

KDE called their Systems Settings "System Settings" first. How do you imagine GNOME would react if KDE had called their new Dolphin File Manager Nautilis instead?
