Torvalds ataca a Gnome

A raíz de una discusión sobre usabilidad en las listas de correo de Gnome, Linus Torvalds sacó la voz y le dio directamente su apoyo a KDE por sobre Gnome.

“I personally just encourage people to switch to KDE. This “users are idiots, and are confused by functionality” mentality of Gnome is a disease. If you think your users are idiots, only idiots will use it. I don’t use Gnome, because in striving to be simple, it has long since reached the point where it simply doesn’t do what I need it to do. Please, just tell people to use KDE. “

Y eso no es todo. Torvalds en otra respuesta habló del equipo Gnome como “nazis de la interfaz”:

“(…) Gnome seems to be developed by interface nazis, where consistently the excuse for not doign something is not “it’s too complicated to do”, but “it would confuse users”.”
