Fedora Core "KDE 4 is seen by many to be the next big step on the free software desktop, while others think releasing 4.0 in its current condition was misleading and a mistake. Either way, it's an innovative release and inline with Fedora's goal of providing the latest and greatest free software it is set to be the default KDE environment in the next major release of Fedora. We caught up with two members of the KDE SIG to talk about the work they're doing to get it ready for release, their own opinions on the software and what they think about the progress made by Fedora in getting over its GNOME centric reputation."

"reputation"

IMHO, the use of the word "reputation" is misleading. After all, wasn't GNOME the official DE of Fedora? All the RedHat tools are written in GTK non? To me "reputation" is more ephemeral than that. I would have used the phrase "GNOME-centric policy".

To me it's like saying "Katrina was probably a natural disaster"... yes, and that probability was 100%

PS- I consider this on-topic since it's saying Fedora's position on GNOME was stronger than suggested in the summary.
