Re: Red Hat Introduces Desktop Linux Competitor

For your information KDE was a desktop before gnome was even conceived.

Thanks for the info. I didn't realize that GNOME was developed for much the same reason that xfree86 and xorg exist recently.

QT tools? I guess redhat not having KDE, then having it later doesn't mean GNOME was older than KDE. It is good that the qt issue is pretty well over for the developers.

I've used GNOME since RHL 5.2. KDE was added later. I used KDE first when Mandrake was an RHL 5.2 distro with KDE added. I played around with KDE for awhile, then switched back to RHL.

I don't know what survey the above statement is based upon. Redhat added KDE as a choice. GNOME and other desktops were before KDE.

I rarely use KDE, but install it as a failsafe and for different choices. I don't dislike KDE. I just feel more comfortable with GNOME.

Having an option to choose one or the other is my preferred option. I can understand if streamlining products to less choice is a corporate strategy. They might have a better grasp on the common used.


I read this article, and I assumed that they will still offer KDE
as a optional install in Fedora2.
Every time Redhat makes a move, it's counter to the majority of
the linux community. I am for them making money and staying
in business, but WOW the way they go about it.
