    Smile What make SuSE SuSE for you?

    Hi!
    I'm just curious to know what make you like SuSE, and Linux. I know that's probably simple question with biiig answer, so let's everyone restrict him/herself to just 3 reasons.

    Linux - I probably like most it's very customization Unix likeness.

    SuSE - I'm new to it, so definitely YaST, and all that it leads to, is very impressive for me.

    SuSE - I'm also very impress of how my computer look like one single solid system, which in general trying to help me to do what I want, and yet still every part of it is customizable.

    Linux - many reasons; I find it a better UNIX-like than most other UNIX/UNIX-like systems, open source and highly modular, good to excellent performance, stability, etc

    SUSE - many reasons; German engineering, polishness, YaST, etc

    1) Package Management

    One can argue against all three however
    In terms of package management truth be told I have seen better package managers on other linuxes, however YaST2 and zypper are very good front and backends wont deny.
    I am more of a apt/synaptic fan though
    As for KDE integration, actually so far it looks like Mandriva has a better KDE 4 in my experience.
    On openSUSE 11.2 I had KDE 4.3 crash on me many times, so far only once with Mandriva.
    Plus I have heard arch with KDEmod is pretty awesome too though I cannot say so myself as I dont use arch.

    YaST is a good tool though I cannot argue much against it, but I know a few people who might say otherwise.

    Well, according to the thread title and the OP I was supposed to list my top 3 in regards to SUSE.

    While I consider Mandriva to be equal to SUSE when it comes to KDE integration it doesn't have YaST, which the more I use it the more I appreciate it.

    As for package management, I was mainly speaking of package management through YaST which IMO is hands down the best GUI package manager although once again Mandriva's is also very good.

    I had the opposite crash experience that you did.

    I don't like the top 3 restriction, so I'll just list my main reasons and others can pick their top 3.

    The things I like about openSUSE are:

    The things I like about openSUSE are:
    More than 3 is definitely not by the rules, so you should supply more links as "payoff"
    Btw, one of the reasons got "huge" draw back - still there's no 11.2 option in SUSE Studio
