Don't kill konqueror it's my default ftp client.  

There are already a bunch of Gnome centric distros.

KDE centric would be no issue nobody else is so in fact it would be a

to Ubuntu, Redhat, CentOS, Debian, Solaris and all those Gnome centric distros 
and concentrate on being the best KDE environment.
