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."

Novell is emphasizing Mono. They are evangelizing it. They want it to become the de facto application platform.

No, they're not, in any way shape or form - period. Some people wish that to be true, but it just isn't and the notion that it is is just plain laughable. Mono makes no money whatsoever for Novell, and in these layoffs and cuts it is most definitely out of the picture.
