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."

What you regarding the internal problems within the GNOME Project could very well be true. I believe we've all seen out of control egos and the 'elitest' attitudes that can lead to a lot of strife & internal problems.

My reason for feeling the way I do is that with GNOME being used more & more it's becoming somewhat of the 'defacto' standardized Window Manager/GUI. This is a good thing.

Standardization & adoption of GNOME would (hopefully) usher in more money, support and talent to help advance it.

With the additional exposure and useage of GNOME, the developers and project folks would be in the spotlight more than they are now. Additional publicity for any project is that sometimes the doors open up and some of the personality issues will calm down (by moving on or getting it together).
