It all depends on what you are used to so if you like and are
confortable with KDE then stick with it. Of course that is one of the
advantages of Linux, that is you have plenty of choice but of course
that can be a disadvantage too. To answer your answer about a KDE based
distro, there is also Kubuntu! Also I the last time I ran SuSE (EL9) it
used KDE by default.
