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."

But I _clearly_ don't get WHY is there such FLAME war? First, it is not quite clear what Novell will do. AFAIK Novell choses GNOME as default desktop BUT will provide KDE envorement as well. So WHERE is problem? Because of choice? Because GNOME gets more attention?

This is very big problem with Linux _desktop_ community and it is such flame wars. WHY?

We should work TOGETHER for future. But all you winning is all - ohhh ahh Novell is dying, GNOME sucks, oh well, KDE sucks too.

GET OVER IT!

Jesus Christ. Just. Stop. It.
