    Opinion: I'm not dead yet! KDE vs. GNOME

    You would have thought someone had just run over a KDE user's dog last week.

    No sooner had the story started to break that Novell was making GNOME the official interface for its business Linuxes -- SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) and NLD (Novell Linux Desktop) -- than the screaming began. Thanks to an opinion piece in LinuxToday, which implied that Novell was killing off its desktop line, people were already in a tizzy. Even after I pointed out that Novell wasn't axing its desktops, it was just committing to GNOME, the howls continued. These included the ever popular, "Why not continue to support both!" OK, here's why. If all you have in your wallet is a fiver and you want to buy a fast meal and your only choices are Wendy's and McDonalds, why don't you buy your meal from both? Well, duh, because you can only afford to buy it from one of them.
