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.

The key thing is, Mono is built on Gtk+ which has better integration with GNOME than KDE. Mono can, and has been ported to Qt

No such thing. Mono isn't built on Gtk+ at all, and doesn't need porting to Qt, any more than, say, gcc needs porting to Qt. It's just a runtime and compiler, completely agnostic to what desktop you're running.

What you're probably thinking of is that most Mono-based *applications* are written using the Gtk# bindings, which is a different matter entirely.
