    And who cares, we all now that alternative WMs, namely those that adapt to your style of using a computer, will win, not those that force their vision on you.

    No he resurrected gnome and buried KDE. Because gnome offers you the most extendable desktop and not a binary prison like KDE. True story, Bro!!!!!!!

    You still haven't actually explained what sort of things Gnome could be extended to do that KDE can't.

    Well we already talked about the tiling windows extensions. And how dare you go against Linus? Linus says gnome extensions are better than the po-po plasmoids.

    KDE had tiling introduced with KDE 4.5, no extension needed, officially supported by KDE. But who cares, If I want tiling (which I do) I use a tiling WM, they are specialized to do that and therefore do it better.
    But anyways, Linus is (actually: was) a kernel developer, so how comes that people give any weight to what he thinks about desktops? Would you give a f*** what your janitor thinks about interior design? Those are totally different fields and I can't see any expertise for Linus in the field of DEs, so who cares what he is using? I still doubt that anyone here use uemacs, just because he does and I see no one switching to Fedora just because Linus does use it.

    The correct answer, of course, is that KDE can be extended to provide window tiling.
