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."

You still don't get the point ! Are you doing this on purpose ?

Not all are jerks but the majority are - from my past 6 years where I tried to contribute to GNOME I happen to came to this conclusion. Besides that my application is not part of the GNOME desktop. You know the desktop that is ready for "corporate" needs but lack basic features. I didn't hang a sign around my neck saying "Atlantis is ready for corporate" because I know it's not but GNOME did hang out that sign for years and they deserve what they get.

About the jerk issue again, If you happen to have dealt with GNOME developers, like contributing patches, trying to innovate, or simply try to come up with own ideas then you know what I talk about. Most of the shit they tell you is either ignorance, telling you to put everything you have on bgo so they don't need to talk with you and forget about your bugreports or if you happen to have some really good ideas it's being talked to death or your ideas are being turned into a troll attempt. Hell god know's how many contributors GNOME lost in the past years due to that very bad attitude. You seem to be one of those people whom working with should really be avoided.
