    KDE is stabilising just now and getting the maturity that KDE 3 once had. It is normal that there are less commits now, less SH1NY, more mainainace, more work outside of core parts. Polishing work.
    the graphs show developer numbers not commits. but as a kde user I hope you are right, that the temporal decline is not permanent.

      Yes shame on you. Anyway we all know KDE's time is up so it doesn't matter if you hide away the 121 data.
      Hopefully.

          An finally! I am happy for you that you see the positive side! Gnome is doing very well and that is good for opensource

          And your destructive point of view that "Gnome kills KDE" - is that gone now?

            Actually, RedHat is using the classic mode for enterprise. Got it?

            Not exactly a win by any means, when you realize they don't want to support classic mode.

            SteamOS's GUI could run without a window manager, just using QT/GTK. XBMC is it's own window manager.

            Nothing new here, you can have X start up with just FireFox running.

            Gnome classic locks the panels where you could once move them freely around. KDE has that god awful peannut and I've yet to find a theme I like.

            When these designers open their minds instead of their mouths, realizing the end result is all about the user experiences of confort .......................

            The world will be a better place.

              RedHat defaults to GNOME.
              Debian defaults to GNOME.
              Both offer KDE as standard option in their repositories.

              So everything is the same as 10 years ago then? I'd say that 10 years of killing KDE business have been quite a disappointment, really.

                I swear, people should have to pass an IQ test before they're allowed to have an internet connection and a keyboard at the same time...

                  There is a real issue here.

                  1. RHEL can't deliver KDE because a) it employs almost all GNOME developers and b) KDE needs to be updated to work reliably, and RHEL can't deliver updates as fast as needed. RHEL 6 uses KDE 4.3. That says all.

                  2. Debian had issues packaging KDE. If you want KDE 4.11, you want Debian Testing. SteamOS uses Debian Stable.

                  If you want an enterprise level distro featuring KDE, you want SLES/SLED. SLES/SLED 11 featured KDE 3.5.10 with an extensive SuSE patchset that became the basis of the only true bugfixes delivered with Trinity. SLES/SLED 12 is going to be the release with an enterprise-level Plasma Desktop, so, that's going to be the one to watch.

                    But none of that has anything to do with Gnome killing KDE.

                      SteamOS uses many user space packages from testing
