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.

RE[4]: Somewhat odd ?

Member since:

gnome support is sucky at best (simply not robust and it can break very easily). while kde support has fallen lengths beyond what it used to be.

So you provide no arguments at all. I actually use openSUSE with KDE 4.3 and GNOME 2.26 installed. I see no problems with both.
I also use (K)Ubuntu with KDE and GNOME. Except the butt-ugly default theme (= negligible cosmetical issues) and not using Slab, both GNOME versions are pretty much the same.
KDE under (K)Ubuntu looks like this:
openSUSE's KDE does not have any of those issues at all. openSUSE's Build Service packages the latest KDE packages every few days.

and don't get religious...

No need for personal attacks against me. Is this the only way you can try to cover up your complete lack of proof for your claims?
