"* I could not find good 3rd party repositories (like rpmforge/livna or debian universe)"

There's a big list of 3rd party repositories available at the openSUSE.org wiki. For your convenience: http://en.opensuse.org/Additional_YaST_Package_Repositories

The two primary ones you'd want are the Guru and Packman repository. Packman has a lot of stuff, including all the multimedia gear.

Guru: http://linux01.gwdg.de/~pbleser/
Packman: http://packman.links2linux.org/

In addition there are also the openSUSE Build Service repositories, which you can find here: http://software.opensuse.org


"* I could not customize the desktop theme as I wanted (plain gnome clearlooks theme)"

I'm not a GNOME expert, since I primarily use KDE, but I'd assume the option for customizing the theme is under the control center, which you can get to from the new menu.

Yes, of course GNOME has theme options in the control center.

However, SuSE tried to make its GNOME desktop look like the KDE one, they've changed some icons, fonts, and their default sizes. But I think they hardcoded those modifications which made Theme control panel useless.

I guess the situation is the opposite of Redhat here. Fedora is known to include "not so good" default modifications for KDE, and SuSE has similar approach on GNOME.

(Btw, the last version I tried was 10.0)

Suse hasn't harcoded any gnome settings. They offer exactly the same options as any distribution with gnome. It's just the control panel that's different.
