Hey, don't try to blame us for everything. ;-)

I am fairly sure the study was of Ximian vs. SuSE, not KDE vs. GNOME.
That is, using the default apps and everything provided by those
vendors; KDE and GNOME were not the only thing different about the
setups. I don't know which SuSE was used or how it was set up, but the
spirit of the approach seems to be that they left the defaults as-is.
