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.

This is rubbish

There's nothing wrong with Red Hat putting in their own artwork etc. Personally I think it's pretty poor quality artwork, but that is there choice. However, for them to make changes which will definitely reduce stability and also changes which break compatability with standard KDE source tarballs then claim they want KDE and Gnome to compete on 'Stability' and 'ease of customization' absolutely beggars belief. Just how are we (KDE) supposed to do that when they've introduced huge problems we already know about?
