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."

Even if GNOME standardize, it still doesn't mean that it improves better or gets better fixed. I think that GNOME has a lot of internal problems to solve first.

you can see that even on events. the ppl in talk sessions and on booths make it clear - KDE is all about fun. nicely hacking together. you don't see that in the gnome camp (or, at least, less).
