Novell: GNOME and KDE to be supported equally

Filed under

In the wake of the uproar that greeted Novell's plans to opt in future for GNOME in place of KDE as it default desktop in Linux products, the company has now gingerly backtracked somewhat. Holger Dyroff, Vice President of Product Management for the Linux platform and employed by Suse since 1993, declared that the company had "after consulting with its customers decided to continue to make both GNOME and KDE available in all Novell products." As in the past the company would continue to develop and support both user interfaces, he added.

"The only innovation is that in all future products GNOME will be made the default option."

In doing so, however, the price has become a little muddled. $192 – a clever dollar per GPU core – has become £199.99. Compared to Maplin’s other single-board computer, the sub-£30 Raspberry Pi, it’s a high-end item that could find itself priced out of the reach of the company’s usual customers. Read more
