    Maybe if more people start using and supporting GNOME office / KDE office and became less reliable on OpenOffice.org. Maybe only then would Sun license Java under GPL.

    azz - please stop implying that I don't care about my freedom and please stop implying that people who use KDE don't care about freedom as much as you do. You are thereby not only insulting a large part of the linux user base but also one of the biggest and most impressive open source projects.

    As I pointed out in my previous post I think none of your arguments holds any water, instead you are changing your arguments no matter what even contradicting yourself in the process. Now I'm certain that you don't agree with me here, but please, how about answering my points instead of trying to teach me about the value of freedom (that you seem to know oh so much about).

    As jdong rightly observed, this thread is getting out of hand and I know that I'm part of the problem, so unless you have anything of substance to say about the issue at hand the discussion is over on my part.

    Please don't jdong. Its got to work itself out. Gnome and KDE people keep having to deal with each other (for now....xfce.....)......Ubuntu forces conflict on this now because one is chosen over another.

    Yet the thruth is that Ubuntu "supported" KDE it would be weak at best (like Fedora), and not be what KDE people want. They should really go elsewhere. There are many options.

    My girlfriend dislikes gnome, so I give her a distro with KDE (SUSE). I don't begrudge her opinion, and I'm glad she appreciates opensource.

    Freedom is what you make of it. Some people see freedom in different ways. At least both sides can agree that the freedom of choice is the most important one of all.

    Couldn't agree more. They are many other GNU/Linux distribution for the people who want KDE.

    But I think saying "They should really go elsewhere" is a bit harsh. It kind of sounds like you chasing people away or throwing people out from a building

    I know there are some GNU/Linux users who can be a bit pushy when asking for some applications or features that they want. But I think they are only the minority. Most users do play nicely in here. Being polite, asking for help, giving help, supporting and contributing.

    Exactly. Mepis was around before Ubuntu.

    I hope I don't sound harsh, but it must be known that Ubuntu does not want to be everything to everyone. Jack-of-all-trades are good at nothing. If people accept that, try the universe KDE, Gnome, or work to make a new project like Kubuntu then all is well. As is Ubuntu justs wants to be the best Gnome based distro it can be. I don't see why that is bad given so many toher choices. I don't see why this should make KDE support a 'sore issue.'

    It is a non-issue.

    I just listened to the Shuttleworth interview on lugradio and was very pleased to hear how supportive he was of the Kubuntu project for exactly the reasons alluded to above i.e. some folks prefer certain kde apps. This sort of inclusive approach seems very nice and won't dilute the primary focus of developers.

    i agree. kubuntu and ubuntu people should holds hands and be friends. its a funny thought but i am serious. i welcome the kde lovers as much as the gnome lovers. we should applaud choice and our ability to all be different. its what makes the world fun...... or cause a ton of wars, depending on how you see it.

    Yeah, and I already have . It was a tough decision to make, and I hope when Hoary's out, I can come back again.
