Fedora vs Suse

I created a new partion on my computer and want to dual boot Fedora or Suse with my Windows partion. Which version is better Fedora or Suse?

What do you want to get out of it? They are both excellent distros with good package management tools and good hardware detection.

Try them both - install one for a week, install the second for a week and make a decision on which one you liked best.

I tried Fedora and hate it. I won't trust a distro which can't even boot on an i915GM chipset - kernel panic mid-boot.
