opensuse desktop as a productive workstation

Hi

Are you using opensuse desktop as a productive workstation at your company?
Which desktop environment, experience?

openSUSE 11.4 64 bit with KDE 4.6.5 on a Dell Notebook for my work in the
company dual boot with Scientific Linux 6.


PC: oS 11.3 64 bit | Intel Core2 Quad Q8300@2.50GHz | KDE 4.6.5 | GeForce
9600 GT | 4GB Ram
Eee PC 1201n: oS 11.4 64 bit | Intel Atom 330@1.60GHz | KDE 4.6.5 | nVidia
ION | 3GB Ram

openSUSE 11.3 64 bit with Gnome 2.30.0 on a home built computer for work in my home business.

The experience is fantastic!

I’d been using 11.2 (and 11.0 before it) with GNOME for years while
working for Novell.

The experience was good for me - using GroupWise was the biggest ‘issue’
because the GW xplat client wasn’t as full-featured as the Win32 version.

Occasionally I’d have to run apps that required Windows that wouldn’t run
in Crossover or WINE - so I did have a Windows XP VM that I used for
those needs. Things like Framemaker or Acrobat (not reader, the full
product).

Doing nothing but that. Supporting a network in an international theatre production company, with only one WinXP computer, all others openSUSE with KDE / Gnome. Users are generally very satisfied, though regarding it as a company issue, not many of them use openSUSE at home.

Yep. 13 desktops and 1 server at 4 different locations, all working happily together. openSUSE Release 11.2, 11.3 and 11.4 are in use.

Three different laptops (in both the Event industry with LED big screens, and currently with a wireless internet company) using mainly openSUSE and KDE3/4. I’m fortunate that I’ve been able to use my Linux skills and favourite OS in both environments. The LED screens I used to work with used Linux video servers to process the image and distribute the (visual) network data to the individual panels. The UI client was written for Windows and Linux as well.

We’re using Debian Squeeze with Gnome as client Desktops at our company and they are working really excellent.
Even a very good feedback from the users.

Our servers: web, dns, proxy, div. roboter, ssl vpn gateway are Debian Etch, Lenny and Squeeze.
BTW we have Windows server and Windows workstations as well.
