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.

- Canonical chooses KDE3 for the 8.04 LTS release ("KDE4 is ready")


You got that one wrong. Canonical did not chose KDE3 for the 8.04 LTS release, as recommended by KDE, but chose to not include KDE for the 8.04 release.
But I guess it suites your list so why let facts get into its way.


- KDE 4.0 != KDE4


Pretty obvious, isn't it?
4.0 is one of the release of the KDE4 series. One would expect that later released add or improve things. Seems to be that way for other projects as well, e.g. GNOME 2.28 will have improvements over GNOME 2.26.


- The Linux Standard Base is unable to support Qt due to the GPL license

The LSB contains both Qt3 and Qt4.
Getting creative to get more list entries?

It still suits my list since hissy fits were thrown about somebody elses decision. KDE:ers doing what they do best! :-)

Qt has been in the LSB since 2006:

When the LSB was hesitant about supporting Qt a few years ago KDE:ers, true to form, threw hissy fits about it. Here's a summary of the discussion (which lasted several years):
