Hi Matt. Longtime Kubuntu user, and frequent distro hopper. Stay with Suse.

I use Kubuntu because I support some Ubuntu desktops. That's it. I
really like the distro and for noob users and for hardware support
Ubuntu really is the most accessible Linux distro available. However,
it is nowhere near the level of polish of Opensuse. Nor is it as
easily maintained as a CentOS system. If you move to Ubuntu you will
constantly find yourself frustrated with the changes to gnome and to
the fact that simple tools (chkconfig for instance) are not available.
Apache configuration is all backwards just for the sake of being
different. Kubuntu is better in the UI department (they don't really
touch it) but system configuration is all wrong. And coming from Suse
you are more spoiled than I was: you have Yast!

Don't ruin your love of OpenSuse over political issues.
