    Once again you are talking out of your ass, without any expertise on the topic you chose to post about. Do for one time something useful and help in the development of [INSERT FAVORITE FOSS PROJECT HERE] instead of annoying people on Phoronix with your shit.
    You should be banned, using pejorative language. Who are you to insult that way?

    Do you have any idea of the possible implications about CLA? In theory anybody can fork it, in practice few have the developers' army to maintain that monster code Qt is. And about Canonical stuff, they pretty sure do their homework to look nice to the mainstream and hide their dirty work (anyway, they already have mercernaries inside Debian governance).

    The same is about CUPS, they use a CLA too. And they take advantage of it, bundling extra stuff only for MacOS X.

    The problem seems to be that technical people often lack the understanding of (micro)politics in technology projects.

    Honton is a notorious troll who will say anything, even blatantly lie, to trash any DE other than Gnome. He has a handful of talking points he uses to derail any thread even remotely related to any DE other than Gnome into a flamefest.

    Again, you are talking out of your ass without any expertise on the topic. You should better stop before showing more people how pathetic you actually are.

    Reading this, you must have insider knowledge of Digia. May it be possible that you are just a frustrated employee of Digia, blasting your frustration all over the web in a childish attempt to denounce your employer?

    Gnome won't die anytime soon, not until someone makes a DE that is more usable and more customizable. Gnome has lost a lot of its existing users who are used to the more traditional kind of desktops, but the new generation of users will find Gnome to be the most productive desktop environment, especially after customizing it to your needs from the pool of hundreds of existing extensions. Also, Gnome is currently progressing at a pace faster than other environment. The only point I have against Gnome 3 is the use of web technologies (CSS, Javascript) which makes it slow and heavy.

    If you don't think that his language is respectful(which calling someone an arse, most certainly isn't), then hit the little black triangle with the exclamation mark in the left side on his post, and tell the moderators about his abusive language. No one has the right to speak like that to someone in civilized society, IMO.

    competing with bo$$ for the Phoronix Troll of the Year award?

    well with your utterly ovbious lack of knowledge about the topic i have very real doubts anyone will take you seriously, so put back that tinfoil hat and back to your cave

    And why would someone be so happy about a opensource software project dying - isnīt windows the "enemy"?

    kde rely on Qt , contribute to it and it will protect its freedom where necessary
    Qt license is free and will remain free
