Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Jonathan Riddell, lead developer of the Kubuntu project and the only person paid by Canonical to work on the KDE variant of the popular distribution, has announced that after the 12.04 release, Canonical will no longer be funding him, effectively putting Kubuntu on the same level as other Ubuntu variants like Xubuntu.

Outside of Yast, OpenSuse is a good distro and probably the best KDE distro.

I used older versions of SUSE as "college web portals", however I think I ended up switching them to a Redhat based distro (CENTOS/Scientific Linux).

SUSE 9.2 was a nice distro if as I remember.

Not bad at all, but since KDE 4 I have liked Mandriva and PCLinuxOS implementations of KDE best (perhaps because they are the ones which feel most like KDE 3.5)
Pity that the future of Mandriva is vey uncertain and that Texstar is taking a leave of absence.
