May be just my own opinion.

The more I see of Claws, the more I'm impressed by what I'd call the

presented here, that the broader Desktop Environment is becoming

One response to this is, of course, Balkanization: split it up into
small communities that hardly talk to each other. The increasingly
dominant response is corporatization: let the Big Guys take over and
sue anyone who gets in their way. Neither is desirable IMO.

Completely off-topic, of course, but something I think needs considered
attention, if only because Claws is likely to become a victim of
whatever outcome eventuates.


BTW, just noticed spelling correction - MUST give thanks for it!
