Re: SEUL: Re: SEUL distribution?

I'm really confused now.

first, I see that:

Then, a little later in the post:

IF a real GUI won't be possible untill GNOME, what exactly is it that's
going to ship in less than six months?

I agree that time is of the essence. I think that was part of the
motivation behind using KDE for e-linux. Yes, it is still Beta, and has
it's flaws, but it's more complete and ready to run than anything else
out there. Either you consider it acceptable to use the license
restricted Qt libs or not. If not, you're just going to have to wait a
little longer before you get out an integrated user interface. If so,
let's get e-linux rolling with KDE!
