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.

Linux_baby is not stupid and I agree with his comments.

It is common for an OS to be defined by it GUI.

Redhat is not called KDE it is called Redhat.

When you looked at computer monitor, Redhat doesn't want you two think it is just another linux running KDE or Gnome, they want you to think it is a computer running Redhat Linux.

Once I was speaking with a unix admin at school in his office, I saw KDE running and I said " you are running linux" he said "no it is freebsd".

Anyway at the end of the day I am more comfortable with Fluxbox and my customized menu.
