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 have stopped using Gnome this year. I now use KDE because it just works, and it's a lot more polished.

With Gnome I have had serious unstability issues, it used to freeze several times a week. I remember re-compiling it over night several times. I don't know, for instance the logout button stopped responding at times.

Other than that, Gnome is ugly whereas KDE is modern and clean. I also feel that KDE grows faster than Gnome and new releases are always THE event.

Oh well, I don't use SuSE, so that doesn't matter for me.
