I have seen many ppl use openSuse at work (I use Ubuntu) .. I wanted to giv it a try and installed it on my laptop .. Its been great so far .. The integration with KDE4 feels absolutely flawless .. Yast, one central place for all settings is awesome too ..

I am not an expert when it comes to all these different distros .. I wanna how do kubuntu & openSuse differ? I know opensuse is redhat/fedora based while kubuntu is debian based .. so the package format is rpm ..

wht r the drawbacks of opensuse?
Like I said, m just starting to learn about the architecture, back-end stuff through kubuntu .. so would you recommend opensuse at the same time coz they really differ architecture-wise?
why do u prefer one over the other?

Sorry abt the long post!
