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.

SUSE Enterprise will stay with GNOME. In fact, SLED does not even have a simple radio button where GNOME is pre-selected. SLED users have to dig into a submenu to select KDE, similar to the way Xfce and other environments have to be selected under openSUSE (SLED ships with no DEs other than GNOME 2.24 and KDE 4.1).

Funny. When I used NLD (this was a few years ago when it was called Novell Linux Desktop) there was and I got KDE installed pretty easily.

Getting KDE under SLED is not complicated, but you have top know it's there, because it's only listed under "Advanced Software Configuration" or whatever that button is called.

How come they're still shipping with KDE 4.1?
