Opinion: That GNOME only thing? I was just kidding

Filed under
SUSE

Well, that was fast.

When Novell gave up supporting KDE, I expected something to happen.

But what I didn't expect Novell to do, as one KDE supporter put it to me, "was to cave in so fast."

What did we know?

In a handful of days, Novell did a 180 degree turn and began supporting KDE again.

I'm not surprised that Novell has decided to support KDE again in its enterprise Linuxes. I had a sneaking feeling with so many KDE supporters in the SUSE division, it would be more or less formally supported sooner or later.

I also would not have been surprised -- in fact I was expecting -- to see some SUSE alumni launch a SUSE-based distribution with a KDE interface. I mean, OpenSUSE would continue to do the heavy lifting of integrating KDE and SUSE anyway, so making one would be trivial.

Full Story.
