Uraeus, I think you made a very good analysis of the KDE reaction to UserLinux. Gnome has had indeed some corporate endorsement recentely, which has certainly lead to some frustration in the KDE camp. UserLinux looked like a good opportunity to have KDE more present in the business world, even as second choice. But the decision was nowhere in our hand.

Anyway, the good news is that we have taken our own way, with already code being contributed for debian installers, endorsing sponsors, wonderful work of Alex Neudorf for Gtk and OpenOffice integration into KDE. UserLinux does not look to be moving that fast :-)

So all in all, it looks quite good for KDE's future in enterprise work. And we still have the possibility of returning to UserLinux of Bruce ever changes its mind.
