KDE: Official Response to GNOME Foundation
Sep 01, 2000, 13:51 (47 Talkback[s])
"The recent announcements regarding the formation of a GNOME
Foundation coupled with the Sun/Hewlett Packard decision to use
GNOME as their standard desktop has resulted in a deluge of
requests to the KDE Core Team asking what our "position" is. Well,
this is it. We offer this position paper in the hope that we
can put this behind us and get back to coding."
"We should caution all readers that the responses are all in
more detail than we really think is necessary. We would like to
answer the question like this:"
"Q: How much does creation of GNOME Foundation
affect KDE development?"
"A: As much as the birth of the last baby polar
bear at the Quebec City Zoo" (i.e., not at all)"
"But these days, that doesn't seem enough. So read on."
