Yes, I didn't mean it as a conspiracy theory. As I said, it is a decision
based on a customer survey, nothing wrong there. But I cannot believe that
a majority of current SUSE users - most of whom certainly have paid
something for a SUSE cardboardbox, since that was always the way of the
SUSE world - would suddenly prefer Gnome after all these years of using
the nr 1 KDE distro. So it must mean, that said customer survey would
probably have been conducted among US companies, perhaps among
Ximian/Novell customers. And there is nothing wrong with that. For
instance, it could be that those are Fortune 500 companies and their
opinions deserve to be prioritised. But they certainly are not a
representative group of SUSE's long time customers.
