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.

As I've said before: Debian. Their focus is equal for KDE and Gnome, since Debian's development model is distributed. Wherever they've got a talented and motivated bunch of developers taking care of the packages, Debian's support is top notch, and the developers taking care of KDE are obviously very good at what they do.

To get cutting edge Debian with a KDE4 desktop, perhaps the easiest method is to download and install Sidux.

I tried Sidux a while back, I think I stopped using it in March or April. At that time, KDE 4 still hadn't actually made it into the main software repository. If there was some secondary repository that had it, I sure couldn't find it. If they've picked it up since then, good for them!
