"Since returning from Copenhagen I have been a bit underwhelmed
by the coverage of what went on at GUADEC II this year. I felt
strong enough about the positive steps taken that I thought I would
write up a quick impression about one of the areas I observed.
To me some of the most important talks we had revolved around
the work we are taking to make sure that GNOME and KDE
interoperate. To that end, here are my impressions of the situation
and what we did at GUADEC to work on the problems."
"First of all I must state that I have been involved with the
GNOME project for almost three years now - so I will say this at
the risk of falling from favor - with those of you who expect me to
say something darker (excuse the lyric reference there)."
"Since the inception of GNOME we have been faced with the fact
that we have two major desktop projects for Linux and other Unixes.
This has brought all sorts of real user problems and many perceived
problems into play."
"We have known all along that one aspect of making the user
experience positive is to make sure that the two major desktops
interoperate well. There have been efforts in the past to work on
these problems. Some have surfaced, others have fallen by the side
as we all focus on other problems. Still, the spirit was there no
matter what most think."
