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."

you can fine tune GNOME and you can fine tune KDE, but have you ever heard of the words - overkill, clutter, confusion, and unintuitive. they are not things that users want.

Oh come on, I've been using KDE for years and it's not overkill; when I first started using it I had absolutely no trouble learning where things were. Some people don't like having that many options, but that doesn't mean there are too many, it's a simple matter of preference.
