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."

Wow suse switches to gnome, and the kde babies seem to go ballistic with an all out frontal assault on gnome.

I find gnome to be perfectly fine as a desktop DE. I can do everything i want, its more pleasing and less stressful on the eyes and noone will convince me otherwise. So people can go on about their polls about how KDE is accepted everywhere or whatever. The DE world is changing now. XFCE is in the game now and enlightenment might jump ship soon.

Im srry for the kde guys, but it looks like enterprise is now synonymous with gnome now. Dont bash the gnome folks for that but just accept that and let them enjoy their moment. A standard was required for linux to move on.

most of my linux life has been with kde. I kept switching to gnome..... but i would switch back to kde since i was more familar with it. But i loved the gnome look. Later on i went to WM and enjoyed my time with enlightenment and flluxbox, but the DE world was calling me. I then decided to get to learn and use gnome and I havent look back. The applications just intrigue me and the stuff that is in beta has got me even more captivatied like luminosity and beagle. KDE always screamed complexity and i was never satisfied with it no matter how much i tweaked it.

KDE and gnome are 2 different things for 2 different people. And you cant tell me otherwise. My lust for features wasnt on par with most of the kde developers and supporters..... so i switch to gnome.
