One factor to consider is those that have a preference for either KDE or
Gnome are likely to choose a distro that defaults to their preferred
desktop.  So, since Fedora defaults to Gnome, it's more likely that
Gnome users will use it (which makes it a sort of self-fulfilling
prophecy).

I wouldn't be surprised to find that distros that default to KDE get
less testing with Gnome.
