What is wrong with KDE 3.x? What is wrong with GNOME 2.8+? These seem to be the two questions arising from the recent revival of Linus vs. GNOME spat. We all know the history; Linus called the GNOME guys 'interface nazis' and advised Linux users to use KDE, which resulted in the longest comment thread on OSNews ever. That kind of fizzled out, only to be brought to light again by Linus submitting a few patches to make GNOME behave more like he wants it to behave.
Which is a good thing. This is what open source is about, right?
Anyway, this of course led to yet another major discussion around the whole GNOME vs. KDE debate, one of the computing world's most favourite flamewars. Every time this subject is discussed, the complaints about KDE and GNOME seem to centre around the same basic complaints.
