SuSE, openSUSE We're in the middle of the distribution release frenxy, or so it seems. After Ubuntu 9.10 and Mandriva Linux 2010.0, it's OpenSUSE time now: the team has pushed out OpenSUSE 11.2. A minor version number, but there's enough in there, still.

In short, I hated its look; I hoped Suse would be better than Kubuntu, but

I don't use KDE. But from what I've heard from others, the KDE problems in OpenSuse are all Novell's fault. Probably due to their shady relationship with Microsoft. And Fedora's poor KDE integration is because... well... everybody knows that RedHat doesn't care about the desktop. And it's well known that Canonical has a secret plan to destroy KDE. So that explains Kubuntu. Debian is not much into custom integration, so the poor KDE integration there is due to that. And... I mean... what would anyone expect from Mandriva? Enough said.

If it weren't for all those unfortunate plots and conspiracies, KDE4 would have killed off Windows and all the other Linux DE's long ago.

It's really a dirty shame, isn't it?

Would you like to do a keynote at next year's Akademy? I haven't laughed so much in ages.

How has the Novell-Microsoft deal affected the FOSS community so far? I still have yet to see evidence of FOSS coming under danger from manipulation by that "Giant Evil" Corporation.

Thankfully, KDE4 is excellent on Gentoo. With the monthly bugfix releases, it almost finishes compiling before the next one comes out!

It's a shame however that this stresses the CPU a bit and the flash videos of people falling out of burning buildings end up choppy, but I consider that a reasonable price to pay for such an experience.

and this is based on? As far as I know, a lot of KDE devs use Opensuse and there's plenty of feedback from downstream to upstream . (Correct me if wrong.)
