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."

Can I have some of what you're smoking please, as it's obviously pretty good stuff!

If you want a good example of Gnome, then don't look at Ubuntu or Solaris, look at Fedora. RedHat has always had the best-looking Gnome, and best support for it.

KDE is way to childish for my liking, jees it even makes WindowsXP look mature! Keramik practically is XP and Crystal is MacOSX.

I've been wondering for a long time why SUSE hasn't swapped to Gnome since it and Ximian were bought by Novell. This is excellent news if it's true.

This is really a bad attempt to circumvent the issue. KDE has been shipping the heavily overloaded Keramik for at least two whole releases - as default! I am wondering what kind of internal system comes to the conclusion that Keramik should actually be a default theme.
