If you have the power for it, at least dual core processor I'd say go for the KDE edition! If your computer is quite old let say Pentium IV or Centrino Processor I'd say go for the LXDE edition

You will have to hunt down the Media codecs in whatever edition you decide to use. If you are planning on doing some DVDs and MP3s playing ofcourse.

Good luck to you!

What are your choices?

I'd go to www.OpenSuse.org and get the latest myself or I'd go to www.SuseStudio.com and make my own from any of the choices.

If we knew what you computer was and how you needed this we might be able to guess better.

Most distros are best with their default desktop, especially those which don't actually have separate installation disks for the others. Not many people will do a custom installation of SUSE to get something other than KDE, so it takes a time for any problems to show up and get corrected:

None---SUSE is not the best choice.

seriously, without some context, I don't know how you can get a useful answer to something like this. Why not tell us what you are hoping to do?--what kind of system you want to have?....

Use them in live mode and decide for yourself.
