Slackware? Kubuntu? SuSe used to be a KDE-only operation. Then they decided 
they had to accommodate Gnome. The two distros I mention are the only ones 
out of the majors that seem to leave you a KDE-only option. But I'm sure 
people on this list know of others. With Slackware, you can't install 
anything Gnome unless you make an extra effort.
