Re: [opensuse] Gad! Windows 7 looks like KDE 4!

Hi Folks,

Since I have to support Windows users as well as Linux, I
fired up the latest VirtualBox last night on a 11.0 desktop.
I then loaded up Windows 7 Beta and it blew my socks off!
It looks like KDE 4!

So, what's going on? Is Microsoft ripping off the KDE community,
or visa versa?

Either way, this is a "good thing" that should make it easier
for Windows users to move to Linux desktops.

You think that it looks like KDE 4? I didn't.

I think it looks an awful lot like vista. Works about the same. I am
just happy that I can use it in DE on openSUSE.

As for moving to Linux desktops - it has little to do with the L&F of
the desktop. The thing that keeps people from migrating - and I had to
downgrade my father-in-law's wife from 10.3 to vista - is the lack of
gui tools (no one wants to HAVE to go to the cli) and lack of support.
(She couldn't stand being told by her provider that they wouldn't
support her because she's not using Wintendo.)
