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.

"openSUSE != SLED.

Well, in the same way that Fedora isn't RHEL, I suppose. But SLED is the raison d'ĂȘtre for OpenSUSE, no matter how much community participants may protest or deny that reality. It makes no sense for OpenSUSe to have a default desktop which is totally unsuitable for SLED.
"

...and it makes no sense for SUSE to be centred around a desktop the community doesn't care about.

It goes both ways.

Putting it all together... it may not make sense for OpenSUSE to have the community it does... which is really the larger problem for everyone. And I'm glad I'm not personally involved in *that* particular pickle.
