Having read a few reviews, I've downloaded SUSE 11.0 and plan an install shortly. SUSE uses KDE 4 as the desktop environment, and from all I've seen, should look really clean.
The curious side of me saw a link to 'most annoying bugs' (guess LINUX has plenty of ordinary ones too) and had to follow it up. I love the description Several laptops panic when closing the lid. (Bug #378917). . Well, wouldn't you?
