Ticked off at the latest revamp of KDE, Linux progenitor Linus Torvalds has switched to Gnome. Apparently he thought KDE 4.0 was a "disaster" and "half-baked". Harsh words indeed.

In an interview with Computerworld, Torvalds said "break everything" probably wasn't the best idea.

Torvalds said, "I got the update through Fedora and there was a mismatch from KDE 3 to KDE 4.0. The desktop was not as functional and it was just a bad experience for me. I'll revisit it when I reinstall the next machine which tends to be every six to eight months."

"The Gnome people are talking about doing major surgery so it could also go the other way."

Ooh, fickle! He does, however, refrain from proclaiming 2009 as the year of Linux...
