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."

What really mad me mad was the two panels in Suse 10.

There's one at the top for like a star menu and sys tray and one at the bottom for just programs so I have to run my mouse up and down, up and down, and side to side.

That wasn't the worst. The worst was autohiding but still sticking out (still visible )by around 6 pixels top and bottom for each panel.

Could I right click on the panels and configure them?

Not those setting. I googled and googled. I was thinking about using the monitor controls until I found out I had to use GNOME Configuration editor and search for a config option like I'm in window.

Suse, you need to do a little more work on the HIG and GUI.

I modded you back up - obviously the gnomites are out again, modding down anything that dares trash their beloved Gnome desktop environment. I agree with you that Gnome's interpretation of UI is pretty odd. Many things just do not make an ounce of sense in Gnome. I'm not saying KDE's perfect (or any other desktop environment for that matter), but in many areas, KDE just does things smarter. That's my opinion, and I'm entitled to it.
