Yeah, that's awesome. That's what Enlightenment, *box and the GNUStep crowd have been doing for a long time, and they have their loyal userbase. I have no problem with this.

However, this will impact the "default" status of GNOME as the dominant desktop. And it might make it an exotic alternative like E17 or ratpoison, instead of being the face of the Linux desktop. http://blogs.gnome.org/otte/2012/07/...nto-the-abyss/

As a KDE user, the only thing I'm interested is that everything interoperates, so I am not punished for my choice.
