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."

I know it's a matter of taste where you cannot wrangle about but I think quite the opposite:

I don't know anyone who likes the standard Gnome stock icons. They look very outdated, unsharp, too complex - see the stripes at the help icons which are and some childish - see GConf editor icon - in my point of view.

The new Tango icons look better but still do not have the quality like Crystal or Nuvola icons. The perspectives are not correct - see the battery icon - nor are the colors consistent - see log out button and new contact etc. The log out button for example was completely taken from the old Gnome stock icons and is very outdated and not very friendly to look at: if I log out i don't want to step in a dark room...

Show the KDE icons and the Gnome icons to some professional designers and I'm sure most of them will say that the KDE icons are more professional than the Gnome icons.
