The Window Manager Dilemma

Filed under
Software

One of the thing's that's been picking at my brains lately is the mess surrounding KDE4. Now I'm not here to scream at the developers and say how much of a fool they were to have released KDE4 so early, and so broken like others are apt to. I'm here instead to attack this issue from another angle. That angle is the dilemma we have with the wide array of existing Linux (and BSD) window managers.

Most will recognize KDE and Gnome are the two biggest of the lot, with XFCE coming in a close third. Each window manager (WM) has its unique advantages and disadvantages, quirks, faults, failures, successes, and surprises. For those who are bent on bashing KDE4's numerous failures, decrying its seemingly premature release into mainstream use, I wish to remind you of something: This isn't the first time it's happened.

And before the Gnome zealots have a chance to point fingers and mock the KDE zealots, let me remind you as well that you're in common company, as Gnome has done the same thing as well, and not only once either.
