GNOME will become the standard environment beginning SuSE Linux 9.2 as
part of the continual push towards desktop excellence.

I hope this means you can now move up the ladder by producing the latest stuff like gnome-2.6 that will play well with SuSE distributions. Congrats, I've found gnome a hard target to hit, if you try to build a new app, usually a whole host of pre-reqs are needed literally days after a new gnome is introduced, but I can understand that maintaining backwards compatibility can be a mugs game.
