Its resource-heavy desktop setup and graphical utilities are sometimes
seen as "bloated and slow"

Thanks for the link.

I knew that KDE is viewed by some as bloated, and I wouldn't disagree, altho' I do like and prefer that
GUI over the alternative (Gnome). I don't see how that means that SuSE Linux is a slow OS as it is
highly configurable and you can make it as lean or as bloated as you want.

The desktop, after all, is an optional extra, and is not the OS.
