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."

Just When Desktop Linux Was Shaping Up

Well folks this puts an end to my company's move towards Linux versions of our games.

Linux will remain with us for server use where it shines of course.

The ability, almost desire, for Linux projects and companies to deliberately shoot themselves in the foot is staggering and sickening.

I was my hands of the Linux desktop mess.
