    Lookin' that way.
    Still if you have Ubuntu working OK, you can enjoy that. Use what works. There have been odd times I have done that. Either using Fedora or Mint. I'm actually writing this on a LMDE install

    Ubuntu rarely works ok. Everything i read about fedora is that is is "****" and mint seems just like a copy of ubuntu in the reviews but just with a few more touches
    Plus open suse is the one with the least people talking trash about it.

    most people who 'talk trash' are not smart enough to be worth
    listening to...even when not talking trash about openSUSE.

    I know what you mean

    Let me tell you though. If I invest in a new machine, it's with some considerable care to ensure everything just works. Now I know we can't all do that in the first instance we make a move to Linux. But it's something to keep in mind. Most vendors (by that I mean the likes of HP, Dell, Fujitsu.....) don't build machines to run with Linux (well, perhaps the odd one), and when deploying hardware with said machines, they mostly don't give a hoot that someone might want something other than Windows.
    Mind you, having said that, I have a pretty hard time installing windows too. All this 'It just works' that people say, is just plain wrong. It's OK if your using OEM with vendor supplied drivers, but you try it Vanilla.

    Mhm. I guess i will come back to open suse the next version. And i will come to check around here every now and then. But for now i will go to mint. If i don't like it then off to fedora.. Or the opposite.

    So I tried copying the openSUSE 12.3 KDE LiveCD (64bit) to an USB-stick with LiLi.
    And guess what? It didn't work! (Well, they only list 12.1 and 11.3 as supported)

    It just loaded from my harddisk and showed the my Grub1 boot menu from 12.2, which wouldn't boot of course, since I have 12.3 with Grub2 installed now...
    After disabling my harddisk in BIOS, only a grub shell was started. (the same happened in VirtualBox)

    So, please, if you want to try openSUSE 12.3, don't use LiLi to copy the iso to an USB drive!
    Do as I already wrote earlier:

    Or use SUSE ImageWriter for copying if you prefer a GUI.

    Please also have a look here:
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Live_USB_stick
    A download link for ImageWriter can be found there...
