    you forgot the most important ones:

    1) drink beer
    2) enjoy and feel proud
    3) put a "powered by linux" sticker on your computer
    4) remove all the unneccesary **** that was installed by default

    Though you can un-check the unnecessary packages you will not use before
    the install. IMO, doing that is better/earier then dealing with it after
    the fact.

    with the dvd you can yes, but the livecd installer does not offer too much finetuning in that area. and some metapackages in the dvd install still have too much unused stuff in them imho.

    like a KDE4 base install, this installs so much stuff I do not want, i personally prefer the Arch way with KDEmod where I can install just the KDE bits I want. But Arch is not really great for running at the office in a M$ environment I noticed.

    However, until you've actually sat in front of your newly-installed openSuSE and *used* it for a few days, you have no idea what's ****** and what isn't.

    Also, a couple of surprises with 11.0 GM (compared to 11.0 RC1):

    1. There is now an ATI repository for 11.0 (along with 8.5-based closed-source drivers). The Sax2 bug is still present (to fix, in an xterminal session, run as root:

    sax2 -m -r 0=fglrx

    to get your snap, AIGLX, and DRI running at full-speed), however. However, once you apply the fix outlined earlier, the snap is Decidedly Noticeable: for example, I have the X1650PRO AGP (not exactly a graphics heavyweight) and, even with my P4 Northwood-C, I have the desktop effects redlined (Hollywood Got Nothing). And this is with GNOME, not KDE, as the default.

    Scary, scary, scary.

    I found I had to reboot before running YaST to add the additional software repositories, as the installation must have left the package database open on first boot and YaST couldn't run

    Cheers,

    Rod Schaffter.

    Well, yes and no. Of course it's better not to install unnecessary stuff
    in the first place instead of removing it later. OTOH I have frequently
    encountered problems with the software selection mechanism, such as
    inexplicable refusal to deselect certain obviously unneeded packages,
    circular, contradictory or just plain unintelligible dependencies, or
    even reproduceable OOM crashes during the dependency check. It's often
    easier to just get the system up and running without even entering the
    "Software selection" part, and then adjust the list of installed
    software from inside the running system.
