I agree that KDE is a better example, but I think the central issue is
commercial interests. In KDE, it's my feeling that there are more
individuals involved, and a good part (most?) of the core team are
sponsored by Trolltech.
Trolltech's interest in KDE is to make more developers use Qt (for free
when working on open source projects at home - the boss paying for a
license when writing proprietary software at work), not to create a
competing product like the companies involved with GNOME.
