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.

people still use OpenSuse after they did a deal with the devil?


I have to see anyone give actual evidence that the Novell/Microsoft deal has had any negative impact on Linux - other than bickering over it. I mostly use gentoo these days, but OpenSuSE is still a great distro. It's what I use when I don't want to have to deal with a source-based distro (like at work where I need a stable environment and can't afford to fix much time fixing problems after upgrades).

Of course, you're free to shun OpenSuSE for "making a deal with the devil," but there are plenty of people out there who still use it because they like it and it fits their needs.
