Are you sure that it's not desktop choice? And more to the point, what
does it matter why people choose a particular desktop? If Ubuntu
accounts for say 30% of Linus desktops out there, then that's a pretty
significant GNOME base for Linux overall. You can't say "KDE is more
popular than GNOME so we should show a preference for GNOME" and then
when the counter back is that across all Linux distributions, it's about
equal and say "well, the desktop isn't the important thing". Either it
is or it isn't.

yes you can say exactly that, because opensuse should be principly
interested in servicing the wants and needs of its community.

Novell don't make "everybody" linux, they lead opensuse linux, and
opensuse users have a clear 2:1 preference in favour of KDE.
