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.

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.

What about the ~40% who prefer Gnome? If there are 1000 people, that makes 400 who just had their preferences demoted. Poor bastards.
