Gnome "Despite the head start that KDE enjoyed, the large number of KDE users and developers, and Linus Torvalds personally endorsing KDE, GNOME has won the desktop environment battle. The final victory came with the third piece of a corporate trifecta, giving GNOME the official nod from Red Hat, Sun Microsystems, and finally Novell. The question is, will the triumph of GNOME lead to the rise or downfall of the Linux desktop?" Run Forrest! Run!

I'm not sure. It's either:
1.) because for-profit business organizations like Red Hat, Sun and Novell have decided to use Gnome.
2.) because he said so.

Honestly, this seems like it's probably more a reaction to SuSE being bought and changed by Novell than anything new.
