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.

Doesn't change the fact they are bickering about rather trivial things, rather than just fixing it.

It isn't a trivial thing at all to have two totally different packages with the same name within a distribution's repository.

GNOME need to fix the problem they created, but they are bickering about it for some reason.

Changing the name is the trivial thing. Does it really matter if it is called "System Settings" or "KDE System Settings" ... it pretty easy to fix but they are being arses for the sake of it.

Anyway it was pretty obvious that was going to happen tbh, since "System Settings" is a pretty generic name.

Also it doesn't really matter who had it first ... it is like two kids arguing over who did what first ... it is pathetic for a group of adults ...

... and your link doesn't change the fact that they also have agreed on a lot of things.

But they are still arguing about stupid shit ... do we have to go roung in circles and fighting like kids.

The point is that professionals don't do this ... I work with plenty of third parties and regardless on how I feel about their business I remain professional.
