Novell recently made GNOME the default WM in their business desktop offer-
ing (or something to that effect). They give full choice in all other dis-
tributions  although  and give no priority to one over another.  The  rest
seem  to  be going in KDE's directions and hate mail like "die  KDE,  die"
come from frustrated GNOME developers, which let us face, do a decent job.

I'm with KDE. 4 years ago I liked Enlightment.


PS - I might as well add that GNOME in Ubuntu is more stable, predicatable
and reliable than KDE on SuSE.
