Since GNOME is the default you have to actively chose *not* to install it. You have to uncheck the box.Fair enough. My original post was in answer to a question about whether KDE was a "second-class citizen" in Fedora, which is why I didn't mention other desktops, but of course the same comments apply to them as well.Fedora has a very active team that works on KDE. Calling KDE "a "second-class citizen" in Fedora" would hurt their feeling I would think. ;-)I wasn't trying to hurt anyone's feelings. Hopefully they've got thicker skin than that, I made an observation based on my experience. I felt then and now that the default KDE desktop looked and felt like a GNOME knock-off. It has also been my experience that most do assume that you have GNOME installed. I'll happily try KDE again when F9 hits final release, I hope to be proven wrong, I don't expect it will all work flawlessly, it is as many have said a major revision, but KDE needs its own personality, I didn't feel that KDE distinguished itself from GNOME very well when i first tried it on Fedora 7. If i'm in the minority with that opinion, so be it. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into Fedora, hopefully nobody takes my comments to personally. No one is obliged to prove anything to anyone. I still think Fedora blows the doors off all the other Linux distributions, I've tried most of them.
Hi Max. You did see the smiley didn't you?And I agree with your observation that Fedora is best. And I also think that the 'KDE team(?)' is doing one heck of a job. What the heck *ALL* of the Fedora people are doing a good job.
The upcoming Fedora 9 is fantastic.I have yet to figure out just where the name 'Sulfur' came from but I like it. I like it one heck of a lot more than 'Gutsy Gibbon' or 'Harry Heron' ;-) or the other strange names that 'other' distribution names their releases.
