Both GNOME and KDE are a lot more than just window managers. They dictate a look and feel. You can offer that same look and feel with your application by using their related development environment. In the case of KDE, the development environment is Qt. In the case of GNOME, it is GTK+. Again, the choice is really a combination of personal preference and compatibility with other applications.
The compatibility issue isn't about whether you can run GTK-based and Qt-based applications on the same system (you can). It is strictly look-and-feel, again. For example, while the GIMP, a bitmap graphics manipulation program similar to Adobe's PhotoShop, is based on GTK, it runs perfectly under KDE.
As always, the radio program will discuss these concepts in more detail and then go on to talk about recent happenings in the Linux community. Tune in for details.

How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
