(Other stories by Mary Jo Foley)
"KDE doesn't want a corporate-backed foundation taking charge of its desktop environment. But that isn't stopping the group from assembling a body to go head-to-head with the Gnome Foundation."
"When the GNOME Foundation was born a few weeks ago, rivals at the KDE Project said, in a Web posting for all to see: We don't need no stinking foundation."
"But it seems the powers behind KDE may be rethinking that strategy, according to sources claiming familiarity with the open-source group's plans."
"KDE is now contemplating the creation of some kind of foundation-like entity -- which some are calling the KDE League -- to spearhead the direction and development of the K Desktop Environment."
"At the heart of the KDE vs. GNOME battle is the increasingly heated question of how much power corporations should have over the future of open source."
