    Re: Would you recommend openSuse?

    I use to dislike openSuse a lot. You really have to use the distro for a bit to get the hang of things, especially coming from Ubuntu and Debian. It's a bit harder to get setup up too. I definitely wouldn't recommend it to a beginner. However, once you do get the hang of things and get it set up, it's may be the best distro going at the moment. It's certainly ranks right up there as the most stable.

    One of the knocks against openSuse has been it's package management. It may not be as good as apt (and even that is debatable) but it's fast and it's thorough. When there are dependence problems it gives you choices on how to solve them. I've only had that happen once. I've yet to use zypper from the command line.

    I've been hopping from one distro to another for a while now, but I think I've found a home with openSuse.

    I would love to see openSUSE pre-configured and installed on some new hardware. I think once it's all set up it is a damned good distro but knowing how to set it up is the learning curve to ascend.

    Yes that would be a great Pre installed OS, it's really feature rich and YaST is an awesome tool for beginners.

    That's a bit vague. For the sake of users who are also interested in trying openSUSE, what don't you care for?

    I agree that SLAB is an utter abomination, but you can change it quite easily.

    I found openSUSE to be solid but way too heavy for what it offered.

    Oh, I didn't think he could be possibly talking about such a trivial issue...

    SLAB isn't bad, if you add your favorites there it is faster than browsing dropdown menus (same with kickoff), on the other hand, if you want to open applications which aren't favorites, then you're screwed up (and, to be fair, that is obviously less common than using favorites).

    But meh, just change it if you don't like it (I like GNOME menu bar actually).
