KDE I've been investigating switching my desktop distribution from Kubuntu to something more... Seriously maintained. I love debian, and consider it one of the best distros out there, but Ubuntu's KDE variant is downright pathetic.

I tired openSUSE a year(2?) ago and it went belly up on me. I have since been running both Fedora (ok) and Kubuntu (jez). I've been running openSUSE 11.2 since day one and it is really good. It amazed me. I'm usually the tweaking monkey master but now I'm more or less running the default install. Firefox integration is nice and the "new" yast is very good. I'm more an apt kind of guy but Zypper, the package manager, works very well.

Haven't tried Gentoo or Arch with KDE4, but if you are looking at Fedora, Kubuntu and openSUSE the choice is easy.

Go openSUSE! ;)

What do you mean by the "Tweaking monkey master" are you more of a Gui tweaker, or a system tweaker? My previous experience was fine from the gui side, but there were too many running processes in the default install and too difficult to figure out what they were doing and what was safe to terminate.

It was just so freaking slow
I manged to break the package management.
It took too long for new stable versions of software to make it into its repos.

It was the closest I've gotten Linux to act like windows. Which was enough to scare me off.
