LinuxToday posted this opinion piece by Lou Grinzo, editor of Linux Programming: "We've all seen the comments from industry pundits and frustrated individual users alike: "Linux needs a
single desktop standard!" they shout. And just in case that isn't sufficiently incendiary, these same people
usually take sides in our favorite soap opera here in Linux Land, the KDE/GNOME mud wrestle, and
anoint one as being clearly the "right" choice for uberdesktop. This is where such conversations normally
take a Jerry Springer-esque turn, complete with virtual chair throwing."
