Novell and Ximian "Contrary to what was expected from recent Novell announcements, Novell executives are apparently slicing deeply into the Linux heart of the company. Jobs and resources are actually being slashed in several areas previously dubbed by Novell management as "key component parts of Novell's Linux developments": staffers working on Mono, Hula, Evolution and Desktop Strategy are getting the sack. SUSE customers around the world will be shocked and puzzled by this management decision."

And 90% of the world's desktops run windows. Mediocrity is good at getting backers.

But note that outside of ubuntu, none of gnome backers feel its ready for the desktop. With friends like that who needs OSX and Vista ?

Even if they were, (which they aren't), unfortunately they've all still advanced as far as an asthmatic ant with some very heavy shopping.

"Distros that matter don't use Gnome."

You mean like Red Hat which accounts for more than 70% of the global commerical Linux sales?

Lets see, KDE hmmm....

Linspire - Has never made a profit
Mandriva - Had to file for bankruptcy
SUSE - In the last 3 years, has lost 5% commerical Linux marketshare.
