Limiting openSUSE to GNOME or KDE is just wrong. Interesting idea though.
Not new, Ubuntu has always been doing that - except they treat KDE as something between an afterthought and couldn't-care-less.
Ideally I would like to see both KDE and Gnome in a well-rounded distribution, but with a priority on KDE, for two reasons: I personally find Gnomes outside the garden seriously infuriating (enough to have to put up with that with gimp, OO and firefox, thanks SUSE for knocking that at least into usable shape!), and, by way of response to JPR's "what about Fedora, Ubuntu, Mandriva shipping the latest Gnome 2 weeks after", those who like to have the latest and greatest Gnome should use one of the above. As there isn't a distribution with an emphasis on KDE I would see this as a distinguishing feature. And by "emphasis on KDE" I don't mean treating Gnome as secondary, but if it's impossible to align with both KDE and Gnome release dates, to align with the KDE ones.
