I propose to make KDE the default desktop in openSUSE.
- It is confusing for new Linux users if they have to decide between KDE and GNOME during the installation. New users don´t know either of them. So it is easier for beginners if there is a default. openSUSE has more KDE users than GNOME users so it is logical to make KDE the default.
- Unique Selling Point. It is important for openSUSE to provide something that Ubuntu and Fedora don´t provide. It would be beneficial for openSUSE to be the only big KDE distribution.
- This could attract more developers because KDE developers need a nice distribution to develop on.
- This would increase the popularity of openSUSE in the KDE user community. The negative impact on the GNOME community is not that bad because Ubuntu is the most popular GNOME distribution.
openSUSE should, of course, also ship and support GNOME. So experienced users can choose. But new users should have KDE as default.
What do you think?
Decision by Michl (see comment #85):
"As written in my email on openSUSE-project, http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-project/2009-08/msg00548.html , we follow the request and default the radio button to KDE, keep the alphabetic order and we'll enhance the desktop description in the help text."
