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.

imagine how happy both (joke!) big buisness that use SLED would be if you changed their default desktop..

It must have been painful moving from Windows to gnome, why make another transition. Simply put these companies would not upgrade.

A linux community is, as a whole, like hurding cats. Everyone wants a different feature for their own specific reasons. For anything to get done then there HAS to be a 'leader' pointing in a direction.

If you don't like the direction, feel free to fork or join another project that matches your requirements. This is the great benefit/curse of open source development
