Well its sure nice to know that there is some division and opposition all around. Perhaps if we ever want GNU/Linux to succeed we need to stop opposing each other and get along? Try to make what we have work together better? Of course this is a lot easier in word than action. And some people are doing this, and I say great work. But a bit less aggresive would perhaps make it all more nice. But remember part of the whole idea of GNU/Linux is that everyone can have everything customized.
In my opinion, GNOME does make some things too simple, and I have not seen all that I wanted to see in it. On the other hand, if there are going to be newbies going to linux they will want a simple and easy Desktop Environment; so you could just call GNOME the easy DE. I guess everything is going to have its advantages and disadvantages...
