    In my experience, openSUSE 10.3 (x86_64) is far more stable and harder to break than ubnutu 7.10 (AMD64).

    Just wish that suspend issues were fixed out of the box on both distros!

    I guess it depends in your hardware. Opensuse 10.3 suspends great on my x86 laptops. The only thing I had issues with was the buggy knetworkmanager (seems buggy in Fedora8 too). So I disabled networkmanager in YAST and use the ifup option with Kinternet.

    OpenSUSE does not suspend out of the box for me either, though Ubuntu does. It's easy enough to fix in openSUSE though following this page.

    http://en.opensuse.org/Pm-utils

    Feels more stable and faster then Gutsy on my system as well.

    Cheers for the link - I'll have a look.

    The only reason for me not to recommend openSUSE to anyone is the installer (especially the partitioner).

    Apart from that openSUSE rocks (so far...).

    The partitioner does need an update. Why they ask for the start and ending cylinder rather then the amount of space you want to use is beyond me. Aside from that, the new YaST live installer is pretty nice. Reminds me a bit of the Ubuntu installer.

    The only mistake I made was not deselecting the online repository. It took AGES to install because of that.

    Almost as long as my Xubnutu on a CF card trial, but not quite

    You can put the amount of space in that area using the 'setup custom partition' or whatever... In the end block put the size in 30.0GB or 0.5MB, etc, etc...

    Still not very user friendly though you must admit?
