I've used Open Suse for about 6 to 8 months, on and off. I had no problems with wireless, but I did with install the first couple times. Download them all checked out my download and said it was ok. I downloaded another one, and things went fine. You use different terminal commands than with the ubuntu products. If my memory is right, they are the same as Fedora, but I can't say for positive. I liked a lot of the OS, but not much help was offered here, and I assumed that there wasn't many here who had used it. I went to the Open Suse forum, and received a lot of info there. This is my main forum, but sometimes you have to go to a more specific place. Been busy recently, and thinking about reinstalling it. They probably have a new version since last summer. It's a good distro and not much different to use. While I admit I know nothing, I thin I'd try a reinstall first, and if that didn't work, a second download, or maybe joining their forum, and using it with open suse.
