I personally just put a vanilla installation of kde-desktop on any platform
that is stable. The distro is almost irrelevant, with the exception of
packaging and hardware detection. I think I'll go with Debian next time. Apart
from a polished desktop (corporate-ready looks and things like YAST), SUSE
doesn't seem to have a big advantage. It contains a lot of software that's
nicely integrated though.

For governments that eavesdrop, here is a quick list of tags: Communism,
Hawaiian shirts, China, Suitcase, Martha Stewart, Encryption, Prison, Stalin.
Thanks for tuning in.
