 Evolution

I'm wondering what will happen with Evolution, as Novell has announced Groupwise, which would be a competitor.

However Novell can sell Groupwise, while Evolution is released under the GPL.

Maybe Novell will release commercial Groupwise plugins for Evolution?

However another possibility is that they will get rid of Evolution. :-(

 Why?

 
 by WinterWolf on: Aug 4 2003

We really have to figure out why all the big companies tend to support GNOME instead of KDE? Don't argue with me about this, because it is simply too true.

If we figure out waht it is, maybe KDE will get more commercial backing than currently. is it the license? Is it the desktop look n feel/usability? Is it simply a chain reaction (if one big company supports it they all want to)? Why?

we need to answer these questions and fast!

Call me paranoid, but I believe that this is not a question of quality. It's rather a question of U.S. vs. Europe. Gnome is mainly developed in the U.S., while KDE is an European baby.

However there may be good reasons for that. Not just ideology. E.g. U.S. firms are closer to the Gnome developers than to to KDE developers.

I don't believe its the US vs Europe thing, GNOME didn't even originate from the US, it came from Mexico.

Anyway, I asked Miguel the same question and here is his response: http://osnews.com/comment.php?news_id=4198

But, of course it's all speculation. I hope we will find out what's driving companies to GNOME so we can get more funding.

If there's one thing GNOME has always been ahead of KDE in it's funding.

I think this is a license thing... while Gnome is licensed under the LGPL which AFAIK permits the use in proprietary programs, KDE is GPL.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
