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: Why I don't understand RedHat Strategy

I agree with you. Red Hat should just stop bundling KDE, and just place in the libraries and needed stuff to make apps just work. If they find an app that is better than the GNOME altenative, modify it to follow GNOME's HI rules, and make it look like an GNOME/RH application.

But then it doesn't matter. The default installation of Red Hat, in which most people would install, doesn't come with KDE.
