Kudos to openSUSE 11.0

I am TOTALLY SATISFIED with 10.3 and I simply wanted to have a look at version 11.0 and if new KDE repulses me to switch back immediately.

KDE 4 turned out to be so glamorous and full of new interface features that I feel my self a little bit nonplussed:

1 - The most embarrassing thing is that i cannot copy anything directly to the desktop using copy-paste pair! for example when i click copy on a file that is on usb flash and try to paste into onto the desktop - the menu 'paste' is disabled???

2 - The other embarassing thing is that I cannot find unmount flash usb menu item.

Don't know whether mentioned above are features or bugs? have used KDE 4 for 30 minutes yet and maybe this time is not enough to get acquainted...

The most critical hardware was configured perfectly (though I've installed nvidia proprietary drivers)
- monitor Samsung '22
- vga Asus 7600 GS 512 mb
- Attansic L1 Gigabit Ethernet Controller

Firefox has automatically updated itself from beta5 to release.

I haven't decided yet whether to return to 10.3 and take a second try when 11.1 will appear or to master KDE 4 innovations right now?
Happily openSUSE 11.0 allows to install both KDE 3.5 and 4.0 concurrently.
