I use both gnome and kde, and apps from one in the other: for instance,
konqueror or kbabel or amarok in gnome, gimp or firefox anywehere. Why

IMO, the kde croud seems to be very vociferous when they think SUSE is
tilting just a triffle to gnome. There are also many SuSE users, like me,
that like gnome: we just keep quiet ;-)

So, please, keep the good work done with KDE, but also do not forget Gnome
and try to make it be buggless. Even if it is not "shiny", we would very
much like it to at least work, without _big_ bugs.

For instance, a forthnight ago I reported #246956 and it hasn't even been
asigned to anybody (gconf using the wrong user: seems important to me).
About a year ago I reported #169993, and it seems to be solved in 10.3,
I've been told; but seemly there was no activity for a long time till I
reported it again fo 10.2 as #248097. Tonight I reported #251129... I hope
to hear something about it before version 11.5 ;-)
