OTOH I (and others) took a look at RHL8, complained bitterly and stayed 
on RHL 7.3.

If KDE and Gnome look alike, and they did, then it's harder to choose 
between them.

If KDE looks so very different from KDE in other environments (and it 
did), it's harder to move _to_ Red Hat-based products. I'm using KDE on 
RH now: the first thing I do is customise it to somewhat standard KDE.
