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 lack of brains at Novell

Despite the best efforts of OS developers, Sun, Red Hat, etc. Gnome remains a fairly primitive desktop environment with as an interface almost as dull in appearance as CDE. I mean, I'm an American, but apparently it mostly only Europeans who can clearly see that KDE is better, has more features, is easier to customize, etc. Now that Suse belongs to Novell, they're going to screw it up just like many of us said when they first bought it. But only after , of course, they raised the prize dramatically. Novell should have stuck to Netware because that's all they know. It's half their fault we have the whole mess with SCO.
