midas wrote:Hello markcynt and ibm450. Actually my concern is that Mint 8 will be based on Ubuntu Karmic Koala. It seems every release there are more bugs and regressions due to Ubuntu's release fever. Have you noticed the release interval between OpenSuse 11.1 and 11.2...it will be nearly 8 months or longer. Just releasing the next version when it's ready. I don't have good feelings about Mint being heavily based on Ubuntu...and if it keeps that way...I might try to switch to another distro (Mint is my main-distro) in near future.
So, I was wondering if OpenSuse 11.2 (in alpha stage) is already much better than Ubuntu Karmic (in alpha stage)...would be nice to find out.

i mean i havnt tried opensuse, but just by looking at the screen-shots, whats so special about it? does opensuse have better hardware support?
isnt opensuse a guinea pig distro for redhat - meaning its always beta? dont know, please advise the pros and cons of opensues besides the fact if you like it better then other distros.
OK, my testdrive for a KDE 4.3 release will include openSuse, Mandriva and PCLOS...must be the top of the bunch!

And for me that's Mint
Thanks exploder voor sharing your experiences! I am member of the dutch PCLOS-forum too and am eagerly waiting on their KDE 4.3 release. Mint will always touch my heart because it was my first reason and first step finally removing windows from my computer...and the desktop-experience is simply unique. It will probably be a hard decision...choosing for PCLOS 2009.3 or the upcoming Mint 8. But as always I go for the distro that will simply work on my system...
