My two cents:
for ease of installation, use, and KDE integration. The fact that openSUSE slowed releases to every 9 months, but even then won't release a version until it's ready is worth the wait.
12.2 is full of bugs (like the gdm one). I still use it since I am used to it the last 4 years. Fedora has rough edges but generally ok.
