    Is this incredibly bad trolling or do you seriously believe that quoting statistics out-of-context, and indeed, ones which are pretty irrelevant to your claim, is proof of something 'dying'?

      Ok, one thing... let's forget the "taking statistics out of context" thing for a while. Let's assume, hypothetically, that these graphs represent accurate statistics that accurately reflect the amount of manpower working on each desktop environment.

      So... wouldn't this mean that in 2010, KDE was 2.5 times "healthier" than GNOME, and their "health" level has since dropped and only recently, in the beginning of this year 2013 dipped below Gnome's "health", and is now only 30% lower than Gnome? According to this statistic, KDE has had lots of extra "health" earlier, and has only recently dropped to the same "health level" as Gnome...


      Anyway, I think this is stupid, there's no point in being against either DE, they both have a userbase, they both have their own vision, and there's plenty of room for both to coexist in peace and harmony on the Linux desktop ecosystem. Both have good and bad points, but at least they're both aiming towards Wayland support, and both contributing towards an open, collaborative future of a next-generation graphics system on Linux.

        You just came here to troll, didn't you? Anyway I have a nice diagram for you which proves that GNOME is dying:

          KDE has about 1/3 less contributors, but those change over twice the number of files, changing over three times as many lines of code.

            Developers experienced with a code base are not only able to work faster than new developers, but they are able to produce higher quality code while they do. Anyone who knows this would never make a remark such as yours. The information provided does not permit us to draw conclusions on code quality.

                  I would assume that's because they're making a huge shift to KDE5 and Qt5 so they're refactoring everything... right?

                    More lines of code means more defects.


                    This whole Gnome vs KDE debate is kind of stupid, btw.

                      KDE doesn't have managers it have had.
