Novell goes Gnome

Novell has denied that it plans to kill ..., although says that it will be removing KDE as the default interface in favour of GNOME.

My 2 cents:
- Novell = Nat Friedman & Miguel de Icaza
- Both RedHat and JDS default to Gnome
- Gnome is getting the window manager for business use
- Apps; OOO, Evolution, gaim are all Gnome apps.

Integration of these technologies on the desktop needs tobe improved.
(intregrate desktop search with apps, I.M., Groupware, policy based desktop management and more). Google hired Sean Egan for Gaim/Google talk voice integration.

Novell PR about this (here)
