I was quite impressed with Suse 10.3 and SuSe 11.0. Both the gnome and KDE versions downloaded and installed easily with Live CD. The desktop is great. I was quite comfortable with handling both versions. Internet connection, sound, Video and everything else worked straight after installation. However, the biggest problem was installing updates. The online site for the update never worked even after long waits. So adding and removing software became impossible. So I had to very reluctantly say Good Bye to SuSe Linux. Pity that!!

Next, Mandriva, the open source version of the Mandrake OS. The only problem with Mandriva was that they kept me sending e-mails to tempt me with their proprietary versions. Got fed up, although their os is quite impressive except for the sound issue. The sound did not work and had to fiddle with it to get it to work.

The two operating systems I have settled for are Ubuntu Hardy and Fedora's latest offering.
