I think SuSE wants to go Gnome-only. They are half-heartedly continuing to
include it for now, because of user complaints, but I won't be surprised to
see them drop it entirely after a while, or at least relegate it to a status
of near-oblivion.

We're supporting both GNOME and KDE - and just look at the current
SUSE Linux 10.1 RCs, it contains both a good KDE and a good GNOME.
The change is that with 10.1 we have - compared to e.g. 9.1 - not one
