SuSE, openSUSE "openSUSE 10.2 is the latest release of the community project, after the somewhat disappointing 10.1 release, where you were liable to not have package management actually working. Hopefully, we'll discover no such flaw this time." More here.

What I meant was that Suse 9.1 was much more polished than most of its rivals.

I have just switched to PC-BSD two days ago and am very impressed. The installation is quick and foolproof. The base system is light, uncluttered and noticeably faster than opensuse 10.2. Getting multimedia support is as simple as downloading and double clocking on the w32codecs PBI. The great thing is that if anything goes wrong you just install CD 1, click repair and you have a fully recovered system in minutes - with all applications and settings intact.

Unfortunatly this is true for almost any other free operating system out there. But speed isn't the main feature of OpenSUSE, ease of use is. They are good in that regard, but others are closing in and these systems are faster. OpenSUSE has to work on its speed, especially with regards to YAST.
