PCBSD also runs KDE.

Just for interest what wrong with Opensuse I always quite liked it although I haven't played with it for a few releases.

Me neither, I used to be on Ubuntu.

1. default desktop is a mess, half prepared
2. crashes (first one on bootup).
3. yast doesn't work in some scenarios
4. default font settings make them look unbearable (that I can understand) what is esp. visible on default font (that I cannot).

Generally feels very poorly integrated and amateurish. Looks, the Novel shambles troubles hit them hard.

Besides I had trouble grasping systemd but that's not their fault.
I've read somewhere I's the latest release is esp. disappointing.

Some upsides: boots up quite quickly and has lots of easily comprehensible support information over the web. The package tools based on RPM also worked quite well (to my astonishment). One click web installation is pretty cool .

Shame last Opensuse I used was quite good, YAST needs thinking about by Opensuse, for the Desktop there is too much server related stuff the Web YAST looks like nonsense - at least last time I saw it. The desktop, however, was well sorted and some tools were great ldap authentication on the clients was about 2 clicks
