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.

I am one of those running (null) and I absolutely love what they have done to the desktop. Now KDE/Gnome will have to make their code faster and offer more features in their own apps to gain favor. Trying to make the defaults look cool doesn't solve anything (like the article says). Development needs to continue but be focused elsewhere.
