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 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.

Somebody requested to make KDE default, and submitted it to features.opensuse.org.
It became the most popular request of all.
openSUSE Team implemented that request.

It's called democracy, not madness.
