I burn all my ISO's to a USB thumb drive of 4 GB big. There are very easy instructions to go by out on Pendrivelinux.com, if you have never done it before. I had downloaded an EXE file when I put Fedora on it a while back in order to make it bootable and now I use that EXE file in Window for all distros on a bootable USB drive. I can only fit one distro at a time so it won't complicate the system when I go try it out. And that's the neat part. I can test it right off the thumb drive and its is a lot faster than a CD and no need to install anything to my computer if I don't want to. Try it out.

Now I checked the new Opensuse 11.2 - KDE4 and I see a great deal of improvement (on both Suse and KDE4), it is a much smoother experience.
I wanted to sit back a little while and just have things work with Mint, and this was exactly what it delivered to me.
I cannot say it is such an "easy" experience with 11.2 (I had to compile from source some apps like Calibre, Verbiste, or the gtk+ file splitter), but I feel I grow to understand things better through these hurdles, it is stimulating to have to search and find things... especially when it works afterwards!
Many little things seem to have been thought towards a better average-user experience in Opensuse and the implementation of KDE4 is very good.
Why not test it out and see?
I feel I will like my stay with Opensuse now
