This was an insightful article on the struggle between GNOME and KDE.
Though I don't necessarily agree with all the writer's points, there is
some food for thought here, especially concerning broad desktop adoption.

<quote>GNOME has won the corporate battle and needs the support of the
broader community. Because many people view KDE as technically superior
and there are some egos at stake, that may be a bitter pill to swallow.
Even if the community does coalesce around GNOME, it in no way
guarantees success, but the continued fragmentation of the desktop
guarantees it will languish.</quote>
