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.

I have actually found it to be the other way around. You can set qt apps to draw it's widgets through GTK (native GTK widgets, and thus fully using the gnome themes).

It is the gtk apps that won't play with others. The "outside" theming is a PITA (gtk-qt-engine is as good as it gets - no really native stuff there).

It is not the KDE guys that are responsible for GTK running nicely with KDE - it is GTK. And of cource the other way around: It is not gnomes responsibility to make sure that Qt apps run good in gnome.

I run both things, and it is A HELL LOT EASIER to make sure KDE apps look native in gnome, than making gtk apps look good in kde.
