SuSE, openSUSE A review of OpenSUSE 10.3, which concludes: "While openSUSE's efforts to simplify Linux or Window-fy Linux can be commended, the inconsistency in their implementation is its downfall. Opening applications quickly becomes a chore with the excessive amount of clicks needed to find the application you want. The application browser loads slowly, looks cluttered, and uses icons that are too large. Yast has been improved but still feels slow."

I have to say, for unbiased sake, that OpenSuse is fast (not slow) to boot. This is good, of course.

It's slow on system configuration and software installation. I even tried the yast2 in text mode - to avoid the potentially new GTK-yast2 bugs - but it's also slow and awkward.
