Kudos to openSUSE 11.0

I beta tested SUSE 11 and run it full time up to today. IMO, the SUSE team still has ALOT of work to do to make this release "stable". They are far better off than the Fedora guys, that is for sure, but there are still too many RC and minor bugs in the release to call it anything but unstable. If your looking to put SUSE 11 on your system full time, I recommend using the KDE3.5.9 or XFCE varients, because the GNOME2.22 and KDE4 versions are really not much more than developmental point releases. This is free software so hey, you get what you get right? Dont like it, either fix it or use something else. There is always Ubuntu/Debian if you want something that is easy to use and always works properly for the vast majority. Not wanking on the SUSE team, but the old saying, "If you cant beat um, join um" should be taken to heed here. The Ubuntu guys are obviously on to something, so it might be good to learn a thing or two from them and put some of their tools into your mix, or make them mainstream.
