"The openSUSE 11.2 installer, which is essentially the
same polished installer from the previous version and needed very
little improvement, now installs the KDE 4.3 UI as the default user
choice, although GNOME 2.28 can also be selected.
"In my last reviews of openSUSE 11.1 and openSUSE 11, I had a
number of stability issues with KDE 4.0 and 4.2 which led me to
stick with the GNOME interface. However, there had been numerous
reports on various mailing lists and community discussion forums
that KDE 4.3 is now the fully “baked” version of 4.x,
so I wanted to give KDE 4 a go again. I’m glad I did. Click

"As with Ubuntu’s Karmic Koala, openSUSE 11.2 will use the
very latest 2.6.31 kernel and use the new ext4 file system.
End-users will have the option of downloading openSUSE as either a
DVD which contains both the KDE and GNOME as well as XFCE UIs, or
as as 2 separate flavors of Live CD, each with a KDE and GNOME
version which is similar to the way Ubuntu is distributed, as
Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu."
