SuSE, openSUSE "Last week OpenSuSE 11.0 Alpha 1 was released, and in addition to including KDE 4.0, PulseAudio integration, and various package updates, Alpha 1 features improvements to the OpenSuSE installer. This installer uses Qt4 and is much improved, which warranted us taking a closer look."

I must say I was truly surprised by SuSE. Installed it on my quazi-server and it works wonderfully. Tried it a while ago but was not that impressed as i encountered too many problems. Small, true, but nevertheless anoying. 10.3 seems like a rock solid distro. This is why:
- I am using KDE desktop. Not one crash since I installed the system.
- Easy updates (one-click-installation) work great!
- Wonderful networking configuration tools included in YaST.
- Regular updates
- Wonderful community (en par with Puppy and Ubuntu)
- And it seems to solve a big problem I encountered on Ubuntu and Fedora with my external USB Soundblaster (some strange behavior when it would go into some kind of loop using processor at 100% and not stopping until restart).
I am really looking forward to 11.0. I hope they will solve an inconvenience involving YaST though. It is a bit slow when updating, compared to ubuntu or fedora.
