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.

Reliance on survey flawed ...

Reliance on surveys of that type are always flawed.

Not only are they usually only available in a single language, but they only give you accurate results for people that opted to take the survey.

The group of people willing to take the survey, that could understand it, and that want to run a specific desktop is likely different than the real usage numbers.

And yes, I would say that regardless of which desktop came out on top (and I don't use OpenSUSE for the record).
