    Thumbs up Hello, I have just installed openSUSE.

    For the first time, and I have to say I'm extremely impressed. I've used gentoo, and ubuntu. openSUSE was the easiest to install and it recognized all of my hardware right off the bat. I just need to do some research on getting it to run more effecient. It's a little slow at the moment, and trying to figure out how to run world of warcraft on here for my girlfriend. None the less. openSUSE rocks!

    I'm also new to openSUSE. I haven't installed it yet (I'm going to wait for the new 11.2 release) but openSUSE seems to be shaping up to be a great distribution!
    Currently I use Fedora 11.

    Welcome, one and all! (Well... maybe not all. It is the internet. Still, you two seem nice. )

    Re: speed problems, bear in mind that there's a new 'desktop' kernel, which has some technical sounding things that I don't understand, like low latency. This should be selected automatically if you install 11.2, but there are ways of switching too, should an upgrade not take care of that when the time comes.

    Might make a difference, because suse has historically (in common with many linuxes) been more server tuned.

    Re fedora - you're a brave person.

    I can see it's a great distro, but personally I never got along with it. If you're a gnomer, and notwithstanding the fact that suse's gnome is very well put together, I suggest you give KDE a quick spin. Suse's is arguably the best in the business.

    I am really, really new to openSUSE . . . I have researched and downloaded the ISO CD.
    I'll be opening it, then installing within the hour.

    I have used MS Windows - forever.
    I have been using Ubuntu 9.04 and LinuxMint-7 for the past 4 months.

    I'm ready for a new Linux OS; and openSUSE is it!!
