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."

That is NOT true if the newest eweek article about that is correct:

Mr. Mancusi-Ungaro says:

"The entire KDE graphical interface and product family will continue to be supported and delivered on OpenSuSE,".

And the last statement I heard about OpenSUSE is that they continue to offer boxed versions.
