    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...

      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.

              True. And that doesn't sound easy for beginners, or does it? So why is then GNOME promoted as "easy to use" desktop in "easy to use" distributions such as Ubuntu?

                Most beginners and average users simply want a desktop they can work on. Not everyone is interested in changing colors or widget styles. For that GNOME does a pretty good job.

                    Nowhere in KDE does it say that you *must* change the settings. If the defaults work for you, then by all means leave them. It is just good to have them there for people who would like to change them.
