desktop permissions? you mean something like KIOSK? that's in Novell's offering, tough it only works for KDE apps. or you mean stuff like ACL? again, only KDE afaik. but gnome will catch up.

anyway, novell is putting a lot of work in server-related stuff, and i guess they spend time thinking about corporate needs like KIOSK and ACL's, so they will end up in gnome - after some time. or the companies buying Novell/Suse will just continue to use KDE ;-)

KIOS is the more overrated tool, it is limited to KDE desktop and KDE applitions, it is ok for internet cafes, but for enterprices, never.

it is overrated BECAUSE it is limited for KDE? now there's a statement. i guess you can think what i'd love to say, huh? about someting just being behind on this... and just because it was sooo easy to build this for KDE... anyway, i agree there should be a freedesktop.org standard. i'm not sure about how gnome organized their config system, but if it's half as efficient as KDE's, it won't be very difficult to add support for gnome apps to KIOSK.
