Why gnome? Because that is what their clients prefer, I expect.

I wonder if they really asked their clients, and if that was the answer -
how much of that

I'm sure they really ask them. They pay...

That's not asking them. That's TELLING them.

Further, we have no sales figures, and we have no alternatives.
So we couldn't possibly know if the product is successful or not.

And I suggest the "Hey we got a few sales" is the extent of their
market research.

My day job company has a lot of products still in the catalog that
get virtually nill sales, but stay there because they cause no problems.
We have to offer these to fill a niche, and give the appearance of a full
solution but we know damn well they use our main products in conjunction with
other people's solutions.

The market place for Sled is people migrating companies from Windows, and
Windows users
are more comfortable in KDE because it does things in similar ways.

I bought a sled, just to run it in a virtual machine. But I found the Gnome
interface to be
so debilitating I haven’t found a real use for it. Its only advantage is the
Long term
support, but the price is Almost the same as Windows 8.1.
