GNOME-KDE relations

Luis, I have to
respectfully disagree with your comment on GNOME-KDE relations; I
don’t think it’s that bad. In addition to .desktop files, we have
also at least agreed on the Extended Window Manager Hints (though we
suck at getting them up on the web in some form other than in a cvs
repository…). And the EWMH works too, because I’ve seen reports of
people successfully using KWin under Gnome (or using Openbox or
WindowMaker or other WMs). In particular, I’d like to point out that
Lubos Lunak (the KWin maintainer) has been particularly helpful to
(and patient with) me as I’ve been trying to get involved on the
wm-spec-list. He’s been very cool.
