Dirk Hondel on GNOME

4:15 pm gnome, humour

On the occasion of the release of Portland v. 1.0, VNUNet digs up a classic quote:

“The KDE guys desperately wanted to look and feel like Windows, and the other guys desperately wanted to make it as hard to use as possible,” said Dirk Hondel at LinuxWorld in San Francisco in August.

    Not exactly surprising he isn’t a fan of Gnome then but his description of KDE is hardly flattering either.
