"The folks over at the KDE team hope you'll use something that works. I think their newest offering does just that. I've been working my way through KDE's newest offering and recommend you check out their newest slideshow presentation concerning Kopernicus, aka KDE 2.0. If you really really like it, maybe even develop on it, and especially start to use it, that could make a big difference to a whole collection of Linux and Unix vendors."

"While everyone in the Linux community has been in denial about it, there is a division of opinion among Linux vendors concerning what desktop platform to support. While most vendors say they support both GNOME and KDE, they usually make it clear where their heart is. Firms like Caldera, Corel, Mandrakesoft and SuSE Linux in particular have promoted the KDE desktop."
