Gnome Honest question. Do you think the GNOME project is as healthy today as it was, say, 4 years ago? Benjamin Otte explains that no, it isn't. GNOME lacks developers, goals, mindshare and users. The situation as he describes it, is a lot more dire than I personally thought.

At the time of KDE4 the discussion was not desktop vs tablet, it was desktop vs netbook and with dreams of being on a mobile phone at some point, so right from the get go KDE4 (well Plasma actually) was designed to have multiple different interfaces using a shared framework but providing very different experiences

And plasma-desktop vs plasma-netbook was a great separation that worked really well. Surprisingly enough, plasma-netbook works equally well on full desktop systems, even going back to Ubuntu 8.04 / 9.10 days.

Haven't looked into PlasmaActive as yet.
