They're not, you know. The focus of the new RH desktop is is to sell a yearly
service to corporates at a price per seat per year. Curiously, this is exactly
what SuSE/Novell and Sun want do to (oh - there's a little company called
Microsoft trying to do the same thing).
The focus being on corporates, I doubt that RedHat is going to spend a red
cent on increasing its performance. Corporates work on a 3/4 year replacement
cycle for PCs and the average PC of 3 years ago probably has molre than enough
oomph to run my unholy triumvirate of KDE (or Gnome), OO and Mozilla.
IMO if you believe that RedHat's new desktop plans have any bearing on what
the people in Aranmore will be doing, you're sadly miataken.
