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."

It's Task Juggler, hands down, because I've needed a project management tool to use. Now that's not an impassioned, fanboy response. Planner is an MS Project wannabe. TaskJuggler is just plain better.

- Exporting to different formats
- Resources and costs
- Analysis, profit and loss
- etc etc

What's more, this stuff actually works!

Why? Well, one can certainly work out fairly quickly that the quality of the development framework available with Qt and KDE allows the developers to spend more time actually adding features that are actually useful to people. You know, software is a tool, no impassioned responses, people need to get work done etc. etc.?

At some stage the quality of the applications on top of a decent KDE application framework will get to a tipping point and really, really tell, and it isn't going to matter one jot just how hard some people try to make something a 'standard'. I just wonder what people are going to come up with then.
