OpenSUSE is easy to install, easy to use and the GUI is very friendly (both KDE and Gnome ^^). This distro include everything most people could ever use.

OpenSUSE includes an installation and administration program called YaST2 which handles all system configurations. It's really strong. Zypp, OpenSUSE's package management, has a powerful dependency resolver and a convenient package management API.

And I am using OpenSUSE for my laptop and my desktop.

I feel this is one of the best distributions of Linux. I Installed openSUSE 12.1 64 bit without any problems, performance was good, and patches were applied without problem.

openSUSE has a nice GUI and is quite easy to use. It is the second most popular distro behind Ubuntu, and the main reason I wanted to try it, is because I wanted to get a popular distro away from the debian/ubuntu main frame. For example Ubuntu is made off of Debian, then Linux Mint and Zorin OS, are made off of Ubuntu. There all the same main frame with little differences. So I decided to try openSUSE, and it is nice, the speed is alright, design is nice. Software manager could be a little better and settings could be put out a little nicer, but it's still a great distro. I give 8.5/10
