Yet as Linux pundit Bruce Byfield discusses, it has entered a fresh chapter now that both desktop have versions that are radically different from their incarnations just a few years back. Moreover, "the differences in KDE 4.6 and GNOME 3 (the latest releases) are greater than they have ever been," he writes. Casting aside his usual diplomacy, Byfield acknowledges that he's heard rave reviews about GNOME 3, but disagrees: "I suspect that the majority of users are more likely to be satisfied with KDE 4.6 than GNOME 3.""
Programmers used to batch environments may find it hard to live without
giant listings; we would find it hard to use them.
