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.

"""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. """

Which patches? AFAIK the Red Hat guys never send any KDE patches to the KDE lists or any KDE developers. The Red Hat devs never talked to the KDE developers.

What are you suggesting? Red Hat patches KDE to make it incompatible, rename all service names, remove the about dialog, which credits the KDE project and as a present the KDE devs should incorporate these 'patches' into KDE? This is a joke, right?
