Sorry, but this is just nonsense. The company I work for (in the Netherlands) specifically supports RedHat under Linux in order to capture the majority of Linux using customers. Which distribution to use and which desktop to use is, as it should be, dictated by a rather complex grid of requirements set by the "outer world" and the in house users needs. Not some kind of European hype wave in favour of one or the other distro/desktop.

The trend to prefer KDE over GNOME only exists with the European distribution makers. *They* prefer to offer KDE over GNOME. What actually gets installed is a completely different matter and I certainly don't see any trend in one or the other direction in that department.
