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."

"I don't think the majority of KDE users are aware that developers making commercial applications have to pay a royalty if they use the QT toolkit. For me this is a good enough reason to avoid KDE."

Looks like most OSS users are no longer aware you have to pay for proprietary software... I considder it totally fair the company's that force you to pay for your software are forced to pay for their development tools. especially if their payments are used for improving OSS! (Trolltech uses lots of this money to pay KDE and X developers)
