Well both Fedora 23 and openSUSE 42.1 come out on the same day, this rarely happens so i will be comparing both releases comparing what each distro offers and what one is better in the end, sure Fedora 23 will have the much shorter lifespan but it still offers a 32bit version so pros and cons for both will be noted.
I will install openSUSE first as I really hate anaconda as installer, I wont be doing Ubuntu again until 16.04 probably the last buntu I will use as its going down in flames once they go use Unity 8, Mir and abandon debian

That should last all of 10 minutes.  When posting about that try and not to use too many emotes like

:hysterical: about windows security and ease of use, swearing is also not allowed. But you can :flame:  all you like

So you plan on getting absolutely nothing done?

Well Fedora 23 released first, seems I was a little off oh well.

I can still use the RC for the comparison if I wanted to but I will wait till openSUSE 42.1 to become official

Well hate to say it but seems like Fedora 23 is the better of the two, I am having issues all over the place with openSUSE.

But I will give both a few days before writing up a review as things are messy on fedora as well in some areas.

Yeah things are still white hot, a lot of initial hurdles facing both distros so it would be unfair to review them just yet.

I may have to belay the comparison for another two weeks, its quite messy right now.

Well its official: openSUSE 42.1 is the looser
Why you you may ask? I cant use my goddamned wireless printer, its not working in openSUSE but is picked up instantly in fedora.
What a shame, I have to wait three years if I before I give opensuse another go, it just sucks too bad.
