I second that vote for OpenSUSE on workstations. I was using Fedora for years but I got tired of dealing with the aggressive development pace. Now, OpenSUSE does the job for me and does it well (except lack of performance and KDE being a big fat pig).

The system is generally slow.

Slow boot, slow application response, slow desktop response, YAST modules are slow (no surprise), and sometimes there is a keyboard delay. The system feels sluggish in just about every way. I could switch to XFCE and that would likely solve several of the speed issues but I want a full featured desktop environment so I deal with KDE sucking.

I suppose you can always choose LXDE as the default desktop during installation, it seems officially supported...
