Novell and Ximian Rumors circulating that Novell is going to kill off its popular Linux desktop lines are completely false. [However,] Novell is making one large strategic change. The GNOME interface is going to become the default interface on both the SLES and Novell Linux Desktop line. KDE libraries will be supplied on both, but the bulk of Novell's interface moving forward will be on GNOME. "The entire KDE graphical interface and product family will continue to be supported and delivered on OpenSuSE."

I agree. I prefer Gnome, so part of me is definitely pleased. However, I'll admit to feeling a bit worried for KDE fans, as SuSE was always one of the big KDE distros (I guess Mandriva being the other?) Redhat has long been focussed on Gnome, Ubuntu is Gnome.

Not that it's hard to get KDE on these distros, but KDE is a good desktop, and I'd hate for support to wane.

As a KDE fan let me say Thank you!

It's nice to see someone who likes one desktop environment and yet still cares about what happens to the users of the other. :-)
