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.

Well come on, starting a whole new sub-distro would be a bit of a major undertaking, surely? It would be much better if the community could convince Novell to focus on KDE ;)

I agree with you that it would be great to have a big distro supporting KDE. The closest that come to this are Mandriva and Pardus, which are both good, but not really as visible as Fedora, Ubuntu or SUSE. I personally doubt that SUSE will want to make the jump to KDE, because it's really too big of a change and I think there isn't enough to be gained, from their perspective. But I agree with what Thom says and I definitely hope the community can convince Novell to change.
