Re: KDE Interop [Was: D-BUS background]

/me douses some flames, then looks for particular question's to answer.

These statements are not very useful. If we are to improve Gnome (I am
assuming that is why you wrote this email - rather than just to flame),
you need to tell us what you need in a desktop, for it to be useful,
that Gnome 2.2 failed to deliver.

Regardless, they would still pay more then mere "home desktop"

> c) KDE's Control Center is superior to GNOME's one

Alright, if you say so, but please elaborate a bit more. If your
complaint is that the KDE one has _way_ more options, then you will
forever view Gnome's CC as inferior because it's aims are different. I,
personally, very much like Gnome CC's simplistic and tidy approach. If
there is some configurability which you believe Gnome lacks and should
have, do elaborate and file bugs - we'll appreciate it.

LOL, now that is an interesting statement. By itself, it could be true.
It can be slow, is somewhat resource-hungry (but not overly so), and
does fail on some pages. But, I would seriously doubt anyone would
corraborate that it fails so many more than Konquerer that it would be
deemed useless compared to Konquerer.

> There is no licensing issue with Qt/KDE already for 2.5 years!..

I believe what the original poster was talking about was how companies
could write and release _commercial_ Gtk apps without paying licensing
fee's, but that is not possible in QT.

I believe the plan is 2.6. Yes, we all know is very overdue. :-)
