After a long time using suse... finally switched to another distro : Ubuntu
Not that anything is wrong with suse (except that it going to be Microsoft-ed), the reasons were entirely project related.
Now that I am using Ubuntu...here is a brief review
The look and feel is really grand... very easy to use.. you no longer have to care about the horrendous dependency problems and unsupported file formats... Ubuntu automatically downloads support for them when you try to run them!!.... no need to search frantically on all repositories:) ....
On the other hand,
Ubuntu dosen't have a GUI for dial-up connections... so you have to use the terminal to connect to the net.. also, it is not as customisable as suse... the arrangement of menus leaves more to be desired...
all-in-all... if you are only an end-user.. Ubuntu is nice, just that you'll take time to get the hang of it.... but once you do, it is really really really cool... and with compis installed, its time to say adios to Windows!
