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.

This is bad. Caldera once made a good job on trying to make a business desktop, but lost itself.

rajan, I"m a happy GNOME user. I moved myself to GNOME 2 as soon as I could.

But I want both GNOME and KDE to thrive, and I sincerely would prefer the KDE team working on improving their environment rather than trolling or bitching - I think KDE 3 is disappointing, albeit KDE 2 was a great advance.
