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.

Great Effort

The article/explanation is great, and I am glad that Redhat is taking out the time to explain. Man, how can anyone continue to bitch after reading the article? How can any reasonable person possibly disagree with the contents?

Redhat NULL is is a great effort. I would say is a huge effort in the right direction, and don't be surprised if Redhat gets even more users.

Don't life the default look? Fine, you are a techie anyways, just go ahead and change it the way you like.
