"Most of the configuration tests were done in the Professional edition. All of the window managers and environments worked well and all had their own standard configuration tools. I had fun exploring all of the different environments, especially the beta KDE2 I chose to install. This was pretty stable, much more so than some of the earlier versions I have seen of this environment, and it makes me look forward to its official release."

"Though not the 'official' SuSE environment, the KDE desktop had a few features that made it fit better with SuSE, such as the neat touch of displaying a stark red desktop and red text when you are in root, as compared to the more sedate default blue tones a regular user sees. The KDE environment also includes Panel access to the SuSE configuration tools that allowed me to quickly access the network settings, for example, and tweak my network settings that I'd entered incorrectly during installation...."

"In all, I found SuSE to be among the most user-friendly of the Linux distributions I have seen to date and it is likely going to stay on my desktop for some time to come. This ease of use is exactly what SuSE is aiming for, as I learned in an interview with Volker Wiegand, President of SuSE Inc., the U.S. division of SuSE."
