KDE For a very long time now, I've been on the hunt for a distribution that really put a lot of effort into their KDE4 implementation. This has been a frustrating search, full of broken installations, incredibly slow performance, and so many visual artifacts they made my eyes explode. Since KDE 4.3 is nearing release, I had to pick up this quest in order to take a look at where 4.3 stands - and I found a home in the KDE version of Fedora 11. Read on for a look as to where KDE 4.3 currently stands.

I absolutely agree. zypper is a huge improvement on zmd. and yast2 isn't that bad either. it used to be a utter disaster, but those days are long past.

OpenSUSE is a really nice KDE distro. But zypper and yast is killing me. It took a while but eventually it crapped out on me, badly. I really thought that dependency problems were a thing from the past. Sure I abused it, but I've abused apt a lot more with Debian and it never crapped out on me like OpenSUSE.

Don't get me wrong, OpenSUSE is a great distro with lots of easy going configuration and their KDE4 desktop is the best I've tried.

Now I'll take Fedora for a ride!

I don't know how people manage to break zypper / yast.

The only time I've had problems with either is doing a vendor change, and that works much better these days.

I also wish people would quit saying that Yast is the software installation tool under SuSE... Software installation is a small part of what Yast does.

Personally, I get confused by people who refer to Yast as "archaic", and then start editing config files by hand.
