When a large fraction of the world economy is run by the creations
of lousy programmers, and when embedded systems are increasingly
capable of killing people, do we raise the bar and demand that
programmers pay attention to pointless details such as leap
seconds, or do we remove leap seconds?
What are the fundamental differences between Gnome and KDE development? There's lots of little differences (2006: Gnome parties on a beach. Akademy has melted ice cream in the rain) but they're both basically communities made up of people who are interested in developing a functional and interesting desktop experience. So why do the end results have so little in common?
