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.

"openSUSE != SLED.

Well, in the same way that Fedora isn't RHEL, I suppose. But SLED is the raison d'ĂȘtre for OpenSUSE, no matter how much community participants may protest or deny that reality. It makes no sense for OpenSUSe to have a default desktop which is totally unsuitable for SLED.
"

...and it makes no sense for SUSE to be centred around a desktop the community doesn't care about.

It goes both ways.
