SuSE, openSUSE On August 4 we discussed the possibility of openSUSE defaulting to KDE during the installation routine. This was raised as a feature request within the openSUSE community, and quickly gained the favour of many, become the most popular request. The openSUSE board and variousother leader within the project have discussed the issue, and have decided that yes, from now on, openSUSE will default to KDE during the installation process.

Goo decision

Even though I primarily use Gnome (Ubuntu and Redhat Enterprise Desktop), I like the idea of there being a major distro with KDE as the default desktop. I do think Kubuntu doesn't get the "love" it deserves. Previously I had used SUSE (when KDE was the default), and I always chose Gnome and I never had any problems. Gnome was definitely a first-class citizen. I believe the same is true with Mandriva - KDE was the default (I don't know if it still is), but Gnome was equally supported - from my perspective at least.

[EDIT] tried to change the Title - oh well, maybe the decision is gooey as well as good!
