      Being a KDE 4 guy I want to like OpenSuse, I really do. I just can't stand Yast and yes I tried 11.2. It is just far too bloated and difficult. Too much "crap" all over the GUI package manager for example; hugely overcomplicated. I'm not a great fan of zypper either though I admit it's pretty feature-full

          i agree too.I dont like ubuntu for the popularity but it is as simple as sudo apt-get install ... Fedora is to "vanilla" in the look and feel way and Mint is too feature full.OpenSUSE is just eyecandy and updated packages, but in terms of use..

            Then install KPackageKit. It's not like anybody is forced to use YaST...

            So "sudo apt-get install" is OK, but SUSE's "sudo zypper install" is not? WTF?

              What would you consider "exciting"?

                Good news. I like OpenSuSE for their stable KDE platform (kubuntu really sucks) and their build service (OBS). Yast is something you have to get used to (is very powerful after that to setup about everything), and zypper install packagename always works.
