I took the quiz posted at the top of this forum. I says OpenSUSE is 100% for me, whilst Ubuntu (my current) 95% for me. My DVD just finished.

any warnings before the big switch?

Backup your current files and make sure you have a windows installed disc for your computer so that you can go back if need be. :)

just back up your current files if you got any, if not then install away. The nice thing about linux is its free, if you dont like it you can just uninstall it and try another flavor.

Yeah, I have Ubuntu, and love it. I will back that up. as far as windows: there is no and won't be any back ups. haha.

I was just wondering if anyone likes or dislikes SUSE over Ubuntu?

Holy LINKS! that is a good thread rburk! I will have to go back through and read some of the other posts you have there. I did get a chance to read the openSuse VS Ubuntu (after i found it on page 17 of 18 hahah!). Hopefully all of the downfalls he was saying SUSE had have been worked out in the newest version I downloaded.

I am a little intimidated jumping to something that doesn't have as much support... :mellow: :mellow:

open SUSE is pretty neat so far. a much bigger and useful OS than Ubuntu as far as I can tell thus far.(been running it since last night)

Can anyone tell me if there are automatic updates or even a software center like Ubuntu has? I would like to get brasero back(dont care too much for k3b). any tips on finding all the drivers I don't have anymore? Maybe a few free games?

Im a big OpenSuSe fan, as far as the linux distro I use most of the time on my PCs, its what I use. I use ubuntu or linuxmint a lot for custumer machines because theyre small and I can boot them from a small flash drive.
