It looks great, nice, cool, and so on, but why don't they join the KDE or Gnome development instead of creating even more confusion?

Well, there's the irony. People want choice and open source, but people (some) want widespread adoption of LoTD.

Why would these guy join Gnome or KDE. So they can have RedHat or Suse as a boss?

Sorry if this seems slightly off topic, but it took several quick Google searches to find via Google that "LoTD" in this context meant "Linux on the desktop." So I thought I'd share that in case anyone else was confused. I was thinking... "Lord of the dance? Link of the Day? Hmm.. how does that apply?" :-)
