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."

Sure, as a user I would use the one that feed my needs, if TaksJugger is better than planner the I'll prolly useit, but I don't use that kind of software, I'd use it for the same reason I would use GIMP and INKSCAPE over Krita and Karbon14, because both do the work better than the other.

Now if I have to answer that from the developer point of view, I can tell you that Qt is hands down a better toolkit but I don't have money to pay for a license and I don't wan't to GPL my code, so I prolly go with pyGTK despite of its inperfections it simple feed my economic needs, you may argu that in the long run Qt can be more cheaper but Im on the risk of not being succefull and Qt won't allow me to make my software as a shareware.

Now, why is windows software with of its flaws more succefull, they simple feed the needs of the people, it doesn't have to be the best, it just have to get the work you need done, and GNOME does that, but I don't get apassionated with it, if KDE 4 were going to be a piece of art I'll prolly use it only as a user, as a developer never, Im don't have any religious commitments with GPL, im just realistic.
