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.

RE: I think Red Hat just saw the light.

I think so too! And if KDE, Qt, GTK+ and Gnome projects accept these patches that make the two environments consistent for ever and ever, then Red Hat has made a beautiful gift to the Linux community.
The difficult part would be to get these hardcore fanatics notice that this a real gift and innovation and not that "red hat doesn't like KDE and gnome" ignorant shit that they spit lately.
