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."

"The problem is that KDE lacks so much in the usability and accessability department that it doesn't make up for the better development process in KDE."
i think you've hit the nail on the head there. kde may well have a better framework than gnome. but gnome is significantly more usable, more attractive to look at in its basic state, and with applications that have a more intuitive interface. these are things that matter most to the end user. kde has a lot of catching up to do in these areas.
