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.

QT claims to support ATK/AT-SPI. However, Trolltech at the time of QT4's inception decided to communicate with at-spi over the Dbus protocol... which, naturally, at-spi of course didn't support and still doesn't (at-spi uses CORBA). There is work happening on this, but who knows when, or if, it will be completed. Meanwhile, QT4 apps are just as inaccessible as they always were and just as inaccessible as QT3 before them

Wow. I was not aware of that. Certainly that should exclude KDE from government agencies and the bulk of private companies. In fact, I'm wondering how any Linux distro which claims to support freedom and equal opportunity for users could default to it in good faith until such time as that issue is resolved.
