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."

Oh my, great apps you listed. Let's dissect that list, shall we?

- NeroLinux: Uses GTK1! Not even GTK2. And the reason is that they used an already existing interface instead of creating their own.
- icluster: Quite unknown shareware app. Not exactly common desktop stuff. But yeah, it uses GTK2.
- transcribe: Shareware. Uses GTK1.
- mathwords? You mean Master Math Words? Shareware, math-learning program for kids. But yes, uses GTK2.
- netfront: Are you serious? That's a browser for mobile phones! There's a Linux SDK for GTK _and_ Qt.

Try again. Maybe you should name some real desktop apps written in GTK. According to the list you posted, GTK is suited for cheap hacks, shareware and kiddy stuff, but not for any serious application development...
