Whatever happens, it will be interesting.  But, I don't really see any
'corporate push' for Gnome causing much harm to KDE.  The developers seem
to enjoy developing for KDE, regardless as to what's going on in the Gnome
camp. ;^)

It's kind of like the fact that just because so many companies keep using
and pushing Microsoft, that's not stopping the Linux developers from going
about their daily business of improving and continuing to use Linux. ;^)
