Looking forward to it

SuSE is IMO a great distro. The reason I ditched it for Kubuntu was slowness of both the system and of YaST, nad the worthless package manager(part of YaST). It seems that they've switched to a new package manager, and hopefully it'll be faster too. If my hopes are true, SuSE could take a fair share of the market. SuSE feels a lot more mature than Ubuntu in some regards(graphical configuration, ease of installing seperate packages, the installer).

I am running beta 9 and it is *a lot* faster than, for instance, 9.3.

Well, I agree, SuSe is a great distro, and is not quick. Yast is worst than Apt-get. I hope than the new changes in Yast ans rpms systems will improve and speed that...

...but, ditching it for Ubuntu, because Suse is not quick???

!!! Ubuntu is not quick neither !!!

Ubuntu has great things, although I prefer SuSe. Is more polished and nicer, with better hardware detection too...But, I'm not sure wich one is slower...

So, it's your choice, of course, but is difficult to understand that anyone could switch from SuSe to Ubuntu looking for speedness!
