Are you nuts? I did compare Ubuntu and opensuse on the same hardware but ubuntu crashed! Opensuse works as a charm! its way better that other distro lots of innovation! I'm a school systems administrator and YAST is the best!

Are you sure you're not a student? I'm pretty sure there are rules about school system employees not abusing punctuation like that....

Just installed 8.04. It has its' quirks, but overall the experience has been great. Installed without whining, booted to the desktop. My biggest complaint so far is that gnome-terminal randomly crashes when editing the profile. Well, that and that the package servers are overloaded.

You know what though? What I really want to do is set up a machine just for trying things. There must be at least a dozen distros I want to try, and half of those are high-quality desktops. Life is good.

Funny thing is, so did I. On the same hardware, HP dc5700, suse will crash and burn (unless you disable ACPI) while Ubuntu will just install and work like a charm.

What don't you try using less abrasive language, so as to be taken more seriously?

I've compared OpenSuSe on the following:

XW6600
XW8600
Thinkpad T61p
NW9440
DC5750
XW4400
DC7800
NX6125
Dell M60
NC6120

All of these machines ran Ubuntu faster and with more stability.

Yast (granted on GNOME, which is our standard WM) is dreadfully slow.
