That's exactly the intention from RedHat. They wanted to unify the
desktops look to make it more like you-know-what. For new linux users I
can imagine it's not that easy to grasp the concept of "which desktop do
you want to use"? To someone coming from xxx this is probably absurd.

RedHat has the real KDE. Search the web if you want to get back the
original look and feel.
