I am soo Tired of the Endless Desktop Flame Wars - Can we Please all Stop This?

Filed under
KDE
Software
Ubuntu

Since the inception of Gnome, there seems to have been a never ending flame war about desktops in the FLOSS community. I am really getting tired of it, because it not only is boring, but also continuously diverts us from being productive.

The biggest asset of FLOSS is choices for the user. One of the essential aims of the FSF through the GPL is to grant the user rights that enable them to have choices. The right to modify software enables people to fork and to create different directions. The ensuing competition fosters an environment of innovation. This distinguishes us positively from Apple and Microsoft.

Rest here




Re: Flame wars

I couldn't agree more. Especially given that KDE is best.
