Novell and Ximian Rumors circulating that Novell is going to kill off its popular Linux desktop lines are completely false. [However,] Novell is making one large strategic change. The GNOME interface is going to become the default interface on both the SLES and Novell Linux Desktop line. KDE libraries will be supplied on both, but the bulk of Novell's interface moving forward will be on GNOME. "The entire KDE graphical interface and product family will continue to be supported and delivered on OpenSuSE."

kde seems nicer

Kde seems to have many nice features that gnome does not have.

Things like kate and the tabular console window, etc.

I don't like the 'bare bones' feeling of gnome.

It seems like this decision is based more on politics than anything technical.

I really wish one desktop environment would 'win' this war. Having 2 different desktops is stupid, unless you are a geek.

If linux ever wants to go mainstream, we need more we should let KDE kill gnome.
