SuSE, openSUSE "In conclusion? I'm going to stick with it. It really is impressive with a great set of software installed by default (taking away perhaps a lot of my need for massive repos), nice touches like the new menu and use of Gnome control center etc." More here.

Don't like the new KDE menu

To be honest, I can't tell how come everyone is so excited and happy about the new KDE menu. I for one don't see it as an advancement over the previous (of course, it may take a little getting used to) because of the myriad of clicking that is needed to find something. In the old-style KDE menu, I could navigate to deep into the menu tree within an eyeblink, now I have to click my way through the thing which is quite annoying and SLOW (especially considering the fact that I have to bear with a laptop touchpad & mousebuttons). IF the menus would open when the cursor pauses at them, it may have a chance but for now I cannot see the advancements of "usability" anywhere. Probably this is like some kind of a Gnome-thing that "has great usability" but stupid me cannot feel it in any way.
