openSUSE developers efforts has been fragmented, i think.

To whom it may concern,

I think openSUSE developers efforts has been fragmented because of lacking focus in one Desktop Environment. I think developing an independent and community driven linux distro such as openSUSE and trying releasing that with more than one DE such as KDE, Gnome, ... cause to some problems such as fragmenting developers effort and some times delay in releasing distro (openSUSE 12.2 delays).

most of people out of this forum advise their friends to use openSUSE if they want a sweat KDE experience. it shows that openSUSE reputation is about it's integrity and focus on KDE. nobody advise his/her friend to use openSUSE with Gnome or XFCE or ... (all of these DEs are OK but openSUSE users usually use KDE and think openSUSE with KDE is the best).

i want to suggest openSUSE developers to only focus on KDE. they could make
an excellent distro with one DE instead of make
a good distro with 2 avasilable DE. and for users that may want to try other DEs, they could use suse studio. i think it would be very useful to start a Poll about this suggestion.

i started a thread about my suggestion in openSUSE forums in this address: http://forums.opensuse.org/forums/english/other-forums/looking-something-other-than-support/477737-opensuse-developers-efforts-has-been-fragmented-i-think.html#post2482247

Who is openSUSE developers? Start to think about it, and you will find that there's no openSUSE devs. Some people have their time paid by SUSE to help the community. Others are contributors, with their own free time, hardware, vision, and envy.
Who are we, to dictate what they have to do.
KDE as any open source software outside has also its own drawback. Mono-culture has always been proved by history to be a failure.

Want to have something done, just start to read how to help your preferred team and project to get a better job done. It's easy, time consuming, and certainly worthy than trying to convince other are doing "THE WRONG(tm)" things.

Offering multiple DEs is one of the important feature of openSUSE, so it can't be ditched.
If OP feels efforts have been fragmented, he is advised to start contributing to the openSUSE-project.
