    Wait, OpenSUSE 64 bits version is much better, specially since you can easily install 32 bits applications without suffering.

    Well personaly I've never tried openSUSE but it makes me angery what Novell did. Its basicly a Microsoft slave but thats just my opinion. I'd go with Kubuntu. Its best to stick to what you know. If you deside thats not for you why dont you try Fedora? I used to use it and it was great but it never messured up to Ubuntu in usablity.

    It makes you angry but you take advantage of it every time you use Ubuntu, so... Fedora and OpenSUSE are both great. If you feel like testing new distros, give those 2 a shot.

    No I would not recommend it. Until they fix the tweaks they put in to KDE 4. When I used it a couple weeks ago, I found their version of KDE 4 to be slow and buggy.

    FUD.

    This is covered many times in many places around the forums. Despite the often excellent explanations and opinions on the matter, the original statements, "straight from the horse's mouth", offer a more orderly and informative approach. Examining the following will hopefully help clarify the Novell-Microsoft agreement for others:

    You don't use Kubuntu I assume.

    Anyway, even if such a things are true (I dunno, I always use the latest KDE from OBS), OpenSUSE is the king of KDE implementation, you'll find KDE 4.2 on OBS or KDE 4.3 if you like bleeding edge things.

    @Sorivenul: I couldn't agree more.

    +1!! (where did the Thank function go?)

    For those people that want to try openSUSE, there seems to be a lot of controversy over ver. 11.1 (very similar to what you hear about Ubuntu 8.10). OpenSUSE 11.0 is getting the better press (similar to Ubuntu 8.04). This is just my observations.

    Fedora is a good distro too. To me it just seems a little more "raw", where you have to poke and do more to tweak it while openSUSE provides the control centers and Yast to help manage setting the system up.

    I have also heard that there is an openSUSE KDE 3.5 LiveCD available though I don't know if it is an official or an unofficial one.
