Re: KDE-Gnome FAQ

I basically like it, but...

a)  GIMP is not a GNOME app, I believe, I suggest you ask a GIMP 
developer or something to verify anyway.

As far as I know, the GNOME guys have never promissed to support XDnD any 
time soon. They will implement Motif drag and drop and said they will 
sometime in the future "solve it by using multiprotocol dnd", but that 
doesn't sound nowhere near next version. As far as I can tell they are 
still using their Xde protocol.
