Do actually popular Linux distributions exist where KDE is the main focus rather than a side story? I’m getting somewhat fed up with Kubuntu and thinking about switching…

Installed OpenSUSE, quickly remembered why I dumped it many years ago. It’s a great system for administrators, not so much for users who just want things to work. Installing Fedora KDE then…
