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.

So, the only difference is that the radio button is defaulted to selecting KDE instead of GNOME. Hmmm. So after all that rabble rousing from the KDE camp, they don't have to move their damn mouse to the button and pick 'KDE'. Good God, what a bunch of lazy-ass whiners.

Heaven forbid a default-selecting-n00b would get GNOME installed 'by mistake'. Oh, the horror!

So you're proposing that Ubuntu and Fedora both offer the same select screen openSUSE 11.1 currently has?

I wasn't proposing anything. I don't understand why the openSUSE KDE community was so mad that GNOME was the default when all they need to do is select KDE instead of GNOME (on the DVD install) and it's done. It is just a radio button away. I'm sorry but it doesn't get any easier than that but still they complain, whine and fuss about KDE not being 'default'.

I really don't care because I don't use openSUSE. I was just making an observation.

I don't get it either. Is the default setting that important? As long as both are equally well supported, I don't care what the default is.

>60% of openSUSE users use KDE. That's a simple fact.
The decision was to just acknowledge that fact.
Simple is that. Nothing more, nothing less.
