TribalSun As for the "single sign-on system", is he referring to Linux making you have both a "super-user" or administrator login and regular login accounts?

I don't believe so. I'm sure he's refering to Gnome, and KDE, and all the other x-windows systems.

Gnome is the most feature ritch, and powerfull. However it seems to be the least Windows user friendly. KDE on the other hand is getting increasingly better, and IS Windows user friendly.

Whatever he means it is misleading. As you sign-on to Linux using its own login account right?

I do beleive that having multiple Sign-on systems is an advantage, however there does need to be a standard, Wether or not Gnome and KDE can coexist I don't know, but if not, then either Gnome needs to get a WindowsXP style interface in all its distros, or KDE needs to be the standard, if Linux is to compete with Microsoft.

I wonder if Gnome will be able to get out a 3D interface, to compete with the Longhorn Direct3D interface?

Ahhhh, good point and your probably correct. Again though, that is up to the individual distributions while the user has the ability to add more if so desired. He could very well say the same thing about windows and the various shells available for that. I don't particularly care for Gnome, I like KDE myself. From what I gather MS has taken alot of things about the KDE and Gnome desktops to incorporate them into Longhorn. Big surprise there, eh? :rolleyes:
