I do tend to agree that SLE *shouldn't* be dragged into the discussion,

part) openSUSE needs to make KDE the default desktop in the installer -
because SLE makes GNOME the default desktop

Like you I agree that SLE should not be part of this discussion, but I wish to
refute your impression in case anyone else adopts it; I and the other KDE
people at Novell who participated in this discussion have studiously avoided
making any such claim, or more generally using SLE for leverage in this

In Message-Id: <200907311726.30995.wstephenson@xxxxxxx> I mention SLED to
emphasise that #306967 does not propose a no-choice solution like SLED.

Nor have the openSUSE community on the KDE side of the Gap Chasm made demands
based on SLE either.

In Message-Id: <200908062157.40238.sven.burmeister@xxxxxxx> Sven mentions SLED
as an example of a 'message' alienating the KDE community, but does not go any

Please don't denigrate this change by saying it's really about something
irrelevant to openSUSE.
