Next time, I should double check that I had a good download of the 32bit version DVD, not just assume that it came through good.
My 64bit version, I had to learn how to configure the partitions, But once it installed, it has been great and solid, and I have been learning how to make it my personal setup through the forums. But the install base was solid from the get-go.
Now the 32bit version is doing just as great. I took my tower to work with me. My boss has let me uses it as my workstation. My boss is so interested in it, that we have converted two XP workstations to Opensuse 32bit.
My boss talked to another boss of a company just down the street from us. Three days ago, I brought my desktop over there and left it there. They have been using it since, with so far the only sitation I have there is I can’t get their network printer hooked. If I can pull that off, they said they are replacing all there machines to Opensuse.
With all of the animosity over 11.0 and KDE4 (however much there happens to be), I think that a lot of positive experiences either get overlooked, or aren’t reported because things are working so smoothly.
Nothing’s perfect, but my hat is off to the developers, the two installations I have done so far have come off without a hitch, and converted one Windows user in the meantime.
