Red Hat "We see the desktop as only a piece of the entire operating system product; integration must extend beyond the desktop. We also believe that users care most about functionality and integration rather than the underlying technology. For these reasons, we have created a single desktop look and feel for Red Hat Linux rather than maintaining two unrelated configurations." Very good stuff over there from Owen Taylor, the Red Hat Desktop Team member.

Why are you posting without reading the article?
The guy CLEARLY states that "Since we have a greater number of experienced GNOME hackers than we have of KDE hackers we are probably doing a better job with our modifications to GNOME than we are for KDE."

Red Hat does not care to make Gnome look like KDE, or KDE look like Gnome. Their point is to create something that their customers would want to buy. If that would be something that looks like.. AtariOS or... GEM, then that would be it. Depends what the customer/average user wants. They have no preferences based on "favoring". They have preferences based on what the person who pays for their produts wants.
