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.

Novell provides the same level of enterprise support for KDE.

Last time I checked, Novell had no interest in improving Kontact at all and groupware is pretty crucial for the enterprise. For example: OpenChange integration for Evolution is pushed, but not for Kontact.
In fact, the full Akonadi port of Kontact is delayed over and over again, because almost nobody is contributing. Now 4.5 is the goal...
What happened about the plan to port Evolution to Akonadi, anyway? Why isn't Novell pursuing that? That way redundancy is fought by using a unified back-end and Evolution and Kontact would benefit equally from new Akonadi resources.
