Opinion: Gnome vs. KDE isn’t worth much energy


Author: JT Smith

LinuxPlanet has a column about conflicts in the Open Source community: “I watch the conflicts in the Linux world with a good measure of
amusement and detachment. Really, when it comes to whether the majority
of Linux users adopt KDE or GNOME it’s not worth a lot of mental energy:
users usually move in the direction of their self-interest, enlightened or not. I
don’t particularly care about toolkits, as most programmers will use the one
that best fits their needs. Since I dislike being defined by others, it matters
little to me what Microsoft is doing at any particular moment. And the nature
of many of the hot-buttons issues in the Linux community really does throw
me for a loop.”
