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.

>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.

Actually it's more like 26%

It does not change anything at all.
Default is for those who just clik next, next, next, finish.

> Poor bastards.

Every Gnome user knows how to clik Gnome radio button. I hope.

Well, it's not 40% who prefer GNOME. Those 40% are split between GNOME, Xfce, other window managers, and no window manager at all.
