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."

Novell realised just like Red Hat that there is a market where users are not apassionated with DEs and use the computer like what it is, a tool, they own nothing to you or other KDE apassionated users with to much free time.

Got that?.


No, because you can say exactly the same of people like you. I'm actually arguing something here and presenting something far more solid as evidence of what is going on. When you have something more than a fanboy response, feel free to come back.

Now you go and do something productive instean of thinking in fake conspirancies, take some air, enjoy life, and don't get apassionated for a DE.....

I would advise you to do the same, because that's not an actual reply to the issues raised. It's an impassioned and desperate response to something you obviously don't like. Got that?

No offence, really, get some air, it is just a DE, don't make it the reason of your existence, wake up for Christ sake, don't waste your life in stuff like this, Novell is free to do with Suse what ever he want's he payed good money for it, and he own you nothing, it is their right and they are doing what they think is the best for their enterprice, let them be, thet are not doing anything wrong.

I refer you back to my original comment, should you feel free to actually reply to the issues raised.

Novell is free to do with Suse what ever he want's he payed good money for it, and he own you nothing

Well, people like you are getting a lot from a dodgy article about what Novell 'is going to do with Suse'. I've raised some pretty valid concerns as to the accuracy of that information.

You're not presenting evidence, you're engaging in speculation. Evidence would be you obtaining a useful quote from someone at Novell responsible for making these decisions. Speculation is when you comment on what you think is really happening, and then maybe base this on your interpretation of history. Regardless I assure you the reason whoever is moderating you is doing so is that you cannot frame your argument in a manner that is civil.
