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."

>WE are the ones that are begging for commerical support.

Does WE are really doing this? Does WE are begging for commercial support? Does we are begging for proprietary Software? Does we are begging for both? Or maybe for nothing of both?
Who are you that you think you can talk for US?

>Yes, $3300 for just Linux, then $4950 for two platforms and $6600 for 3 platforms and all

No, $3300 is for all 3 platforms. $3300 for the best cross-platform toolkit you can get. $3300 for the best C++ Framework. $3300 for maintainig ONE code for ALL platforms. $3300 for a great tool if a single project has a value of more 100000 dollars, that's the best bargain everyone can get!
