I managed to grab the Torrent for it from the Distrowatch weekly news feedback section, I have had the KDE version on my spare computer for a few days and I am impressed with the overall feel and running. Nothing too suprising, but I have not found any problems yet like I did with the pre-release version. The install took hours and hours though (CD version grabs the extra stuff of the internet)
The funny thing was that I had been running fedora 7 on it and it couldnt access my Ubuntu or windows partitions but Suse found them and gave them there own grub screen sub menu. It was very bizarre seeing ubuntu 6.06 again!!
I used the http://opensuse-community.org/Multimedia page to install the codecs to get things running, though I have heard that mp3's work out of the box through amarok. It was easy to set up though I did need to download the KDE british english package using YAst. (Yast is better but still slower than Synaptic on Ubuntu/debian)
My main PC runs Ubuntustudio that I love using and wont be changing in any hurry, and my main laptop runs Ubuntu 7.04
Looking forward to Gutsy!!

The download page is showing 10.3 now. I got it reinstalled and so far it's working great! Much better then before, and much faster this time round. It's really too bad this such a great distro is being ignored by a lot of the linux community due to the whole Novell deal.
Practice safe text. Never run a command unless you know exactly what it is going to do.

Using it (Gnome Version) now in Virtualbox, I'm very tempted to install it to my harddrive.
*Thinks a bit
-Where's my blank cd!
Does anyone know how to enable font smoothing for Firefox? It's very irritating that they've changed this setting.
I guess I'll download 10.3 and try it. I've heard nothing but good things about it. I didn't have much luck with 10.2.
