Hey all,
We are working towards using PCOIP zero clients.  Currently for Linux, this means moving to CentOS.  Is Gnome the only desktop option for this?   My hate for Gnome is especially strong. 
Thanks,

Should have been more specific.
Teradici support.
Been using OpenSuSE for the last decade, Teradici says they support SLED, but there are issues with the Teradici host software on OpenSuSE.Application vendors have been pretty agnostic to our choice of Linux OS and have always supported us with few exceptions.
Cheers,
