Another thing the two distros are free of charge so you should download them both, install them both just to have the experience and then play around with both of them and then choose one.

Good luck to you.
Oh. I thought it's gonna be like inserting the CD to another laptop then the OpenSUSE installation will just basically get everything from there.
So as of now I have a 2mbps connection. How long will it take for everything to be installed?
