Mandrake or SuSE

I've both Mandrake and SuSE avail.
Can you guys compare/contrast the strong and week points of both?
I'm interested in ease of installation and ease of use once it is installed.

i think this would belong in the distribution forum...

but short and simple:

mandrake, easy to use/install. very newbielicious.. its attracted by newcomers to linux due to its ease of use and configuration.

suse, great distro, lots of good documentation i think, pretty fairly easy to use/install. lots of programs come along with it as it has one of the largest installs you can do. i think it can come with over 4 or 5 gigs worth.. someone correct me if i am wrong.. haven't used since 6.4
