SuSE, openSUSE SUSE Linux used to be a very KDE-centric distribution. Then Novell came around, bought SUSE and Ximian, and slowely but surely they turned the now-openSUSE distribution into effectively a GNOME-centric distribution with KDE as its sidekick. The openSUSE community, however, doesn't appear to be particularly happy with KDE being a sidekick.

So what is stopping this "community" from giving up on Novell, taking what is known as OpenSUSE, and make a "real" OpenSUSE with KDE only.

If CENTOS can get redhat sources and compile something...maybe a bad example.

Remember KDE for redhat. What happened to that? How about KDE for SUSE.

I am unhappy that there isn't an awesome KDE distro as I would have liked to see the potential that exists in the KDE environment.
