“KDE is delivering a better version of what GNOME’s goal has apparently morphed into: becoming a great component framework that you can write to in multiple languages. Nicholas Petreley rebuffs the common GNOME battle slogans and explains why the window-manager’s name needs reworking.” Read the article at LinuxWorld. Commentary Update by Eugenia: The author of that article advocates that Gnome is… lame, but I would just say that these wars “gnome vs kde” are the lame ones.Interoperability between the two environments should be the theme and not unthoughtful trollings like the ones we read in our forums or the 700 comments on Slashdot today. Every elegant desktop OS, has a single DE, so “unite” these two big envrironments under a common ground, before it’s too late (no, they don’t have to become a single DE, just to work under the same rules that unifies the DEs for both users and developers). Unix lost a lot of its market power the last few years, because of fragmentation. Don’t let the same happen to this new headstart we get today with the help of Linux. Don’t let the history repeat itself. But why are you still reading this? Havoc said it best.
