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."

RE[2]: KDE vs. GNOME

Oh Dear. We have y.a.g.t (yet another Gnome troll). How the f--k did you get modded up to 5?

Quote: "If you want to give desktop to the masses you can't give them tweak'n'trick-whole'lot'a'bunch'o'mess like kcontrol. "

huh? kcontrol is no where near as messy as you're trying to indicate. Stop spreading fud. Oh hang on, is a pro Gnome site. Fud is allowed here ;-)

Quote: "Every preference in KDE (in any KDE software) is designed to tweak even the last detail on desktop (that probably no one even looks at)."

That's right. Is someone holding a gun to your head saying that you MUST change and play with all of the settings? No. The default settings are relatively sane, just as sane as what Gnome offers.

Quote: "The only single reason why KDE is heading the wrong way (or is loosing) are old KDE users. Buggin' for new features and tweaks and not considering that JoeSixpack might be just confused with them."

I'd personally disagree here. To me, as a former Gnome user, it lost the plot around v1.4, and KDE picked up the plot around v2.0. Just my honest 2.2c (inc GST) worth.

Quote: "But I still preffer clean and simple design. I left KDE completely as soon as G2 came out. And "simple, non confusing and well designed" were the only reasons. I don't need zillion buttons, options and preferences."

And some people do like that. Neither Gnome or KDE are totally right. Desktop environments are a preference. I see many things wrong with Gnome, that I personally dislike. That is part of the reason why I use, and prefer KDE. Someone else might be the exact opposite - they might prefer fluxbox to either Gnome or KDE for a variety of reasons.

What you are basically saying is that "I like Gnome, and everyone else better like Gnome as well, or else! Because I dislike KDE, it must be shit, and everyone else must not use it because they should agree with why I dislike KDE!".
