Frank Karlitschek has posted on his blog about the possibility of having
openSUSE use KDE as the default desktop.


This is an interesting question, historically KDE was the default desktop of
SuSE, until what seemed like internal politics made a play to have GNOME
pushed as the preferred option instead. From the outside one can only
speculate what happened at that time but the end result is we have the choice
of either GNOME or KDE at install time.

The majority of the openSUSE user base uses KDE, this is not in dispute. Would
it not then make more sense to have KDE as the default desktop?

What do you think? Has having a choice of desktop at installation time brought
any tangible benefit? Should openSUSE go back to using KDE as the default
desktop or maybe you think that GNOME should be the default desktop instead?

You can vote for this either way at the openFATE feature request Frank
created. <>

Cheers the noo,
