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."

If you keep spamming with this off-topic stuff then it will continue to be moderated, regardless of whether your original comment should have been. In your comment you insulted a nebulous group of people that must be the readership of this site, or the editorial staff. If you do either and it annoys someone with mod points, there you go. If you can't articulate what you mean without being obnoxious, don't be surprised when your comments are moderated down. It doesn't matter if there's a 1% kernel of truth in your post if you frame it in flamebait.

Instead of just stating that it is indeterminate as to whether this is true because the conclusion does not eminate from a direct quote, you opted to share with everyone your completely level-headed opinion of certain employees of Novell, and while yourself not having anything to with this, position yourself as a more authoritative source than someone that actually works there. For your grand finale you insulted either the editorial staff or the readers of this site. Let's not forget that you brought up YaST and other support matters that are directly addressed in the article, as reason for why Novell wouldn't transition its default desktop primarily to GNOME.

So please, keep whining and spamming your comment so that there is doubtlessly reason to moderate your posts down.
