    Don't forget Hudson, same story as MySQL, the original creator and most of the core developers left to start Jenkins. Hudson got handed over to the Eclipse Foundation.

    So, who thinks eventually MySQL and Hudson will follow in the same footsteps as OpenOffice and go to the Apache Foundation? Java is a different story, I don't ever see them let that one go. It's too...

    Yes all of them support both KDE and GNOME (and others like XFCE, LXDE), but there's a default, and presumably it receives more attention and polish than the others. Otherwise there's no reason for...
