For several reasons, he installed Gnome and started using it for the first time. Now a few weeks later, it's clear that GNOME is a good fit for what is needed. - Why GNOME now? - Overview of GNOME/KDE relationship & glimpses behind the scenes - Loyalty or liberation - Free and open solutions vs. my project is better than yours - Compare KDE & GNOME desktop operations - Advantages and disadvantages of each GNOME vs KDE is a long-standing and wide-ranging debate, involving technical merit, project culture, personalities, long term viability. Bring your desktop experiences, and be prepared for a lively discussion" Location: ROOM CC201, on the 2nd floor of BTC's new Campus Center Building.
