At least for me.

For my 1.5 years old laptop (Sony Vaio), Open SUSE 10.2 is the only one distribution with WPA working with no need of any hacking. Just as simple as selecting my SSID from a list and type a password. Last stable versions of FC, Ubuntu and CentOS have failed on this. I always manage to figure out how to solve this kind of problems but OpenSUSE is the only distribution that gives the feeling that everything can work without hacking the kernel or the network configuration or whatever.

Besides the stuff of adding repositories of non-free stuff (but which are detailed in the webpage of the distribution), I'm still amazed how polished OpenSUSE is. Well, I accept that YaST can be difficult (and much slower) to install software compared to Synaptic or Yumex.

Now with version 10.3 bringing an improved software installation and YaST and an even better knetworkmanager, I'm just excited to take this to home this night.

Personally, I think that OpenSUSE does not receive all the praise that it should have.
