well, several of you have asked, here is what i was talking about -

http://primates.ximian.com/~miguel/archive/2004/Mar-29.html

now several of you have already quoted it back, and i just followed miguels link to nat's explination on slashdot (http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=102104&threshold=-1&commentsort...)
and your right, there still is some ambiguity. the thing is though, miguel knows what he and the rest of the ximian guys at the VERY least are doing, and it isnt Qt, its GTK.

"My team and other teams within Novell continue to develop and use Gtk as their toolkit (recently open sourced Simias/iFolder for instance) and all of the Mono GUI development tools.

The only use of Qt that am aware of today is SUSE's recently open sourced YAST. "

now, the way i read that is that if novell hasnt even *started* getting people to work with Qt, chances are we will see a focus on GNOME in the next release or so. it would also explain the move by novell to open SuSE, less developer overhead by reducing the amount that they actually have to work with Qt.

anyways, after re-reading this stuff, you guys are right, its still pretty up in the air. from the way i read stuff, my guess is we will see SuSE gnomeified in the next little while. at the VERY least, we will see a functional GNOME in SuSE, not the pile of ass that gnome has been in that distro.
