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.

About three statements of rajan_r:

> Well, they got two, Spark and me. And if Gentoo doesn't pleases her highness, make that 3 (Eugenia). :-)

Count 4 ;) Maybe 5, 6, 7, 10s? :-)))

> Lycoris, ELX, Lindows aren't major desktop distros.

I know there are GNOME-only distros out there, as I know there are more KDE-only distros out there, Distrowatch and is always remembering us ;)
But Lycoris, ELX and (mostly) Lindows have a good PR/hype machine, that's why I put them. (There's also Xandros)

> It is rather amusing to see you tell that KDE is the default deskop of UL when UL isn't released yet.

Given the fact that 3/4 of ULers are KDE proponents (SuSE, SCOCaldera and Conectiva) and the fact that SuSE is leading the tem technically, so I could infere this ;)
