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."

Please read up on KDEs licenses before you speak...

KDElibs are under LGPL, BSD and MIT licenses, it is true that you have to buy a commercial license to Qt if you want to write closed source.
The QPL allows you to link non-GPL open source applications against Qt. Qt (open source edition) is under dual license, QPL/GPL.
It is simply not true that you are forced to use GPL with KDE and Qt.
