Looking again at GNOME vs. KDE


Author: JT Smith

From a column at ZDNet: “The LinuxWorld event that seems to have stuck in most people’s minds (or craws, depending on which faction one is aligned with) is the announcement of the GNOME Foundation. Wireless vitriol aside, I think that all this buzz about GNOME vs. KDE is completely ignoring the real issue. I mean, really, who cares whether the underpinnings are CORBA-compliant? Before any developers out there begin squawking that they care quite a lot, thankyouverymuch, it bears pointing out that GNOME and KDE aren’t really for them. They’re for those hypothetical Linux Desktop Users Of The Future.”
