Does it require KDE? Or will it work smoothly/safely/completely
with, say, GNOME?
I got comfy with a few odd apps under KDE, but when I switched
to GNOME I found that some of them got all bent out of shape,
while others worked fine. Since both KDE and GNOME are fairly
well supported in SuSE distribution, I've been kinda cherry-picking.
