KDE vs. Gnome: Not boxers vs. briefs argument

Author: JT Smith

From a column at "The conversation ambled toward one of his first loves, KDE.
"It's not a boxers vs. briefs argument. Although the
copyright/copyleft arguments made against KDE aren't very fair,
what I get with Gnome is simplicity. If I actually get to move
code simply over onto other platforms, so much the better.
Gnome isn't rocket science," he said, "and it's also not Windows
or the Mac UI, either. But the ethnic purity arguments are . KDE
is cool, Gnome is cool, but Gnome is an attitude where KDE is a
more evolved front-end.' "
