Wow, Gnome 2.5? Cant wait to see what that looks like B)
Even though I think Kde 3.2 is bloated, they have added a lot of great features. I installed Kde 3.2 on Fedora 1 some time ago and I was suprised.
I know some people dont like Red Hat but if anyone puts out a "stable" 2.6 kernel anytime soon they will be one of the distros to do it. I hear Suse is developing a 2.6 too. Im sure that will be just as good. B)
