Me neither, I used to be on Ubuntu.

1. default desktop is a mess, half prepared
2. crashes (first one on bootup).
3. yast doesn't work in some scenarios
4. default font settings make them look unbearable (that I can understand) what is esp. visible on default font (that I cannot).

Generally feels very poorly integrated and amateurish. Looks, the Novel shambles troubles hit them hard.



Besides I had trouble grasping systemd but that's not their fault.
I've read somewhere I's the latest release is esp. disappointing.

Some upsides: boots up quite quickly and has lots of easily comprehensible support information over the web. The package tools based on RPM also worked quite well (to my astonishment). One click web installation is pretty cool .
