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.

Gnome/Kde attitudes
by redtux on Mon 16th Sep 2002 20:41 UTC

I find it very ineteresting the difference in attitudes to this between gnome and KDE users

On gnomedesktop.org and gnomesupport.org we discussed this when the issue first came up. Basically our feeling was we were not totally happy that a lot of the nice things about gnome2 were changed but RH's changes can be very easily justified.

On the other hand KDEs reaction seems to be on the lines of "how dare RH mess with KDE - they have no right" along with very hosttile attitudes towards RH in general.

BTW - OT - I find it interesting that Mandrake is going more towards gtk now (eg their config tools now depend on gtk not QT now)
