SUSE (KDE): Initial impressions

For all of you who know what SUSE Linux is, this is for you. For the others, look it up before reading this. In short, it’s another Linux that you can download with either KDE or GNOME. I will be talking about the KDE version. I put the LiveCD in and installed it before trying. It took a really long time to install in VirtualBox. About an hour, though I wasn’t timing it. Even though it took forever to install and not a pleasant time to download, it was worth it! The desktop is one of the best KDE desktops I’ve ever seen! It’s glossy looks are nice, but the desktop is only a quarter of the screen, which is different, but not good for someone like me. You could have a different opinion. The “Start” menu was nice and clean, with different sections for applications and system tools. The applications that came with it are nice and simple and GIMP has a SUSE skin to it, which is a bit odd to me. Starting up after it was installed was amazing for me! I loved it for some reason. It showed a small hard drive icon in a gloss-box, I guess that was the boot loader. The virtual machine must have restarted without me knowing… Either way, it was nice. All-in-all, SUSE Linux running on KDE is a great operating system and I highly recommend it! 🙂
