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."

And your point is? Some UI stuff for you. What exactly does "reveal" mean? I suspect that it means "show file information" or something similar, but it's not very clear. "Refine" - Again, not a word I'd use. "Find now". You don't really need to use the word 'now' in all honesty. By clicking on the 'find' button, you're expecting it to start searching as soon as you click on it! UI isn't just about how the windows look, how you interact with the windows visually, clutter/unclutter, etc, etc. Using the right label idenfication, etc, is also very important. I almost get the impression that the various labels in this example were originally designed for a non English language, and then very badly translated into English.
