Illegible Codswollup

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 17, 2007 06:12 AM
I had to re-read your illegible post three or four time to decipher what you were trying to say.

The comparison of Gnome and KDE, two rival Desktop Environment projects, is a very valid comparison that is regularly made by Gnome oficianados as well as KDE users. Only an apologist would attempt to deny the validity of the comparison with the apples vs. oranges cliche.

Regardless, I find that you are leaving out some important little details.

Apples don't beg people to use/eat them. Apples don't tell people that they are better than oranges. Apples don't condescendingly tell people to eat apples for a month, instead of oranges, and then come to their apple conference, at the people's inconvenience, to tell apples what people think of them.

The only questions in my mind are why Linux was frustrating himself with Gnome at all? Was he trying to give the Gnome desktop another chance, after writing it off a year ago? Was there a feature that KDE was lacking that he hoped to find in Gnome? Why does he waste his breathe and his programming skills on the Gnome camp when they repeatedly continue to rebuff him and everyone else that doesn't goose step to their ideals?
