SuSE, openSUSE LinuxForums reviews SUSE 10.1, and concludes: "Everything worked perfectly and the system seemed to be very stable. The boot splash, the login managers, the installer and the desktops were customized with a unified SUSE look and feel that made them beautiful and very professional. The YaST installer in particular impressed me a lot, and I was amazed to see how SUSE succeeded in making a great desktop operating system, both with Gnome and KDE, offering a lot of software, a lot of options, a lot of configuration tools without making it hard at all for the user. This release also comes with great new applications such as Xgl, Xen and AppArmor. Everywhere I looked, I saw really nice things, great ideas and a beautiful presentation."

In my ThinkPad I got better results with this, comparing to FC5:

- Intel Wireless NIC: Detected but need manual configuration in FC5. Automatically detected and configured in Suse 10.1

- Network Connection: Asked for "keyring password" - each time I wanted to access my wireless network in FC5. No "keyring password" needed in Suse.

- Hibernation & Sleep: Quite bogus in FC5. Works in Suse.

- Beagle: Had to start indexing after each reboot -tried to apply the hack posted on developer's web page without success-. Works fine on Suse.

- Desktop 3D effects: Unusable on FC5, faster on Suse but still not for everyday use.

Overall both are great distros but on my particular hardware configuration Suse wins so far.
