I only found one bug in it tbh, in that the settings for my display were
incorrect and had to be custom-configured. Aside from that, getting audio
and video set up was slightly vexing, but that's mostly because I have a lot
of stuff that uses Windows codecs. RPMs were available on a third-party site
so the vexation came from finding them and getting the correct ones more
than anything else.
It picked up my USB printer and scanner perfectly, my external Firewire HDD
was mounted automatically, and wireless networking worked, albeit with lax
security because of the age-old-problem with proprietary drivers. In all
honestly it was the best desktop distro I've used yet, and the
longest-lasting as my default OS, nearly a full month! :)
All that being said, I have ongoing concerns about: a) SuSE dropping KDE as
their default desktop; and b) SuSE disappearing altogether just when I've
finally settled down with Linux on the desktop. I wouldn't use it on the
server-side either, mostly because I've been using distros with Red Hat
style tools and layouts for years and don't fancy changing now.
