I have tried OpenSuse 12.3 recently. OpenSuse has a nice interface, but the system is slow and unstable. The wifi and sound drivers do not work or they have issues. The applications tend to stall and crash. This would be a great system if it were more stable.
IMPORTANT - 11/13/2015: In light of a possible breach we have scrubbed all passwords. You will need to request a password reset through the site. Click here for more information.
The openSUSE distribution is a stable, easy to use and complete multi-purpose distribution.
