"KDE is the Default on Novell Linux Desktop"

Would I tell you this? No, I'm fair and don't try to cheat you. Whoever tried Novell's Linux Desktop 9 will know that it has no default desktop, you have to choose either KDE or GNOME during installation and there is no indication what to prefer. Is the GNOME camp simply uninformed or do they have dishonorable intentions? I keep reading from them and hearing from them like in the "101 Things to Know about GNOME" talk at GUADEC that NLD's default desktop would be GNOME.

And a cookie to whom can give a link to a news/report about the proclaimed 1 million running GNOME desktops in China: I don't mean the initial declaration of intent (coincidentally dated inauguration day of that then new product) but something newer than 2003.

> They still do let their mouths run away with themselves at times the Gnome guys, and that’s bad because people start pushing things before they are really ready or before people have thought things through.

Do you think that they are in parts the same who made Novell to ship OpenOffice.org 2.0 Beta (OpenDocument incompatible, OOo1 now offered via YOU) and Beagle Alpha (had to be disabled by default) with SUSE Pro 9.3?

Not really. I think it should be noted that Novell/Suse uses Suse Linux Pro to effectively beta test software on people now. I was really referring to the fact that some people still seem to think they're going to go off and take over the world whilst painting over what position they're actually in. That doesn't do anyone any favours.
