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 so, I can continue using SuSE, which is currently my favorite distribution.

You require KDE to be the default or you can't use it?

I understand Gnome is a viable choice for many users, but I am not a Linux user so much as I am a KDE user. SuSE just happens to let me use KDE right of the box with almost all my hardware working (which no other distribution can say). It will be a sad day if KDE is dropped as the default in OpenSuSE.

You are not "so much" a GNOME, KDE or Linux user as you are a Suse user. The desk top has very, very little to do with getting your hardware working; You can thank Suse for that.
