    Default Plymouth Gets Tighter Integration With GDM, X

    Phoronix: Plymouth Gets Tighter Integration With GDM, X

    For about two years now Red Hat has been working on the Plymouth project to replace RHGB with this graphical boot program that leverages kernel mode-setting and other newer Linux innovations to provide a clean, flicker-free boot experience. Over the course of the past few Fedora releases, Plymouth has continued to pickup new features and is also now being used by Mandriva...

    GDM, GDM, GDM. All anyone cares about these days is GNOME.

    Nothing wrong with GNOME. All they need to do is fix their damn panels and menu. As is, KDE is a far better desktop, though gtk apps. are for the most part superior to qt ones.

    The only thing wrong with GNOME, as I see it, is the complete and total lack of configurability (at least compared to KDE). Add that, and I will give GNOME another chance.

    And what about KDM? Why are KDE users always left behind?

    GNOME is just as configurable as KDE. The thing is that in KDE it's available from the start (and easily accessible), while in GNOME you usually have to install extra packages or mess around in gconf.

    I think that in Fedora things works sort of like this:
    - Red Hat focus is on GNOME, so they develop everything in GNOME before;
    - if a Red Hat employee or a volunteer wants to get things integrated they are free and welcome to do it. But that's not a prerequisite to ship a new software.

    Think of PolicyKit 1, David Zeuthen (Red Hat employee) and Dario Freddi (KDE volunteer). It works like this for a lot of other things, and it applies to Ubuntu / Kubuntu to some extent too.

    How many corporate installs of KDE with a service contract are there?

    Actually, qt apps are superior to gtk apps. To name just few: Amarok, Kate, Ktorrent, Akregator, SMPlayer...

    As a KDE user I can only say that this is true only if you count _only_ Qt3 applications. They are superior to gtk applications, but most of qt4 applications aren't mature yet (e.g. Amarok2, KOffice2, KBluetooth4, ...)
