Its interesting to note that for someone who does not care about the Linux desktop or Novell, segedenum is a very active flamer on anything related to Novell, Gnome and Mono.

I never said I didn't care about the Linux desktop or Novell, it's just that I've never seen someone cry wolf so often for so long, that's all. You might want to keep that in mind.

I notice people are quick to use the words flame and troll, but they never do actually reply to the points made..... Whether that's because they don't want to or can't, I don't know. Probably a combination of both.

I do not know the gentleman, but he exhibits a scarcity mentality, not an abundance one.

Wow, really? Nice try, but wrong.

He fears that if people spend time on things that are not aligned with what he wants he will loose something in some form.

No. I like things that work, and have a fighting chance of working ;-). I know many people absolutely cannot comprehend black and white thinking in any way shape or form, but on the subject of the open source desktop a certain amount of it is required. It's the main reason why it definitely won't happen, which is the word I believe many people use.

I wanted to correct a mistaken claim about Novell and the desktop. The Linux market today is much larger on the server than on the desktop

A very well done. I don't believe I made that mistaken claim.
