    I've actually been a fan of the green/white or green/lt. grey. They seem clean and professional but then again, maybe SUSE should use the light version while openSUSE uses the dark version?

    (Then again, I am also a fan of Ubuntu's old multi-color logo (not so much the 2-tone "professional" one they use now) and their brown/orange colors were not too bad and I think made them stand out. The purple does too, but not as much "fun".)

    Interesting 1:

    Tested KDE 5 on a WM, and they seems to have revert to the old "logo" compared with what alanbortu published here before.



    Interesting 2.
    It took about 1/2 minute before I realize that the page on plasma 5 in my browser was written in Swedish. No auto translated. Make my day.

    The installer still asks too many **** questions.

    For it to be "straightforward" enough for people, it needs to be more like the Ubuntu installer - it needs a Beginner button "Hi, wanna install? Yeah! LET'S DO IT" and then an advanced button that actually allows you to tweak things.

    Here it is time for.. I put my foot in my mouth. I totally agree upon that the "new" looks better. I hope that the openSUSE 13.2 are brave enough to take the step. Mea Culpa.

    I hate software taking decisions for me. I want MORE questions.

    For instance:

    Is this a laptop or a desktop or a virtual machine? (it often guesses wrong)

    Is it intended for home or office?

    Server usage?

    I see your point Robin and that's why I suggested that it should have an Advanced button that gives you the chance to modify ALL THE THINGS! \o/

    But it should also have a complete dummy mode that doesn't ask you more than the very basics like Region, Keyboard layout and that's about it - maybe present with a few partitioning choices. Other than that it should just "Do it" - take Win8 installer as a great example, it's "Hi, where are you from?" and that's about it.

    Interesting. I have for many years peddle between orders, developers and users. I don't have a clear answer yet but a path forward.
