Any of you ditched Ubuntu?
i been Testing openSUSE 12.3 and i can say it's one of the best Linux Based OS's i used in year's it has many Advanced Features over Ubuntu i really like the openSUSE Build Service the one click installs was nice too any of you give it a try and what do you think? it is a ubuntu killer or not?
http://www.opensuse.org
The Tumbleweed project provides a rolling updates version of openSUSE containing the latest stable versions of all software instead of relying on rigid periodic release cycles

Linux Mint 15 looks good too Cinnamon 1.8 last time i used Cinnamon it was in Beta

"What many people don’t understand about Linux development is that it’s truly a team effort:
Red Hat develops the kernel,
Novell develops the applications,
Debian does the packaging,
and Ubuntu takes the credit!

In my experience, openSUSE 12.3 doesn't have very good hardware support for laptops. My wifi doesn't work, even after trying a lot of potential solutions. Touchpad also doesn't work. It doesn't have the JustWorks™ feature present in Ubuntu and Fedora. It also has different default PATH from other distros that I've tried and so 'sudo' doesn't work straightaway for some executables (I'd get the "command not found" error). IMO, the only Ubuntu competitors I see are Fedora and Arch-derivatives (I use both).

Over the years I have used a lot of different distros and they all have their ups and downs. Suse has always been a favourite of mine and if I did jump ship it is probably where I would go for my main system.

I don't see it as an Ubuntu killer though, I think Ubuntu and most other distros have different targets in mind. Canonical are clearly targeting a unified OS for all devices where most other distros are content just with the Desktop.

Ubuntu being overzealous maybe it's own undoing if they bite off more than they can chew though.

Well, if OpenSUSE works on your hardware it's great. Really polished distro. I'm still not sure which distro I like best, OpenSUSE 12.3, Ubuntu 13.04 or Debian Wheezy.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will try it.
I'm using ElementaryOS Beta (Ubuntu-based, Gnome3-like minimalistic design), because it's... minimalistic and fast and nice looking at once (unlike LXDE, for example) =)

Ditched Ubuntu a few years back. 9.04 was the best release, since then it went downhill.
Using Debian Testing since and never looked back.

I've ditched Ubuntu for some while back. Mostly because im not so interested in using the newcomer friendly OS, since I am looking for a little more challenge and community oriented OS.

But for testing purposes so am I currently using OpenSUSE myself, but I have not been able to play bastion through steam, and Im currently not finding any solutions either.

I think i will ditch kubuntu on my laptop when my arch is perfectly working. Id somehow like it to have a lot of work getting things running :D

But already replaced xubuntu with arch on my homeserver the last couple of days

Mint Cinnamon here, it just lets me get stuff done instead of trying to tell me how to work (stoopid Unity)

It's only work to get things running on Arch, when you don't know what you have to do. ;) I find it a lot harder to work with something like Ubuntu. How would you set it up on a UEFI System with Dual Boot for Windows for example? Their installation routine probably isn't suited for that. This is why I like the new install scripts for Arch Linux. It's much more flexible.

I have moved to Mint 13 and I'm now on Debian Testing.
Ubuntu is not bad. I love the Unity desktop, good support, awesome community etc. But when I had Ubuntu, I have been called noob - so, this is the reason.
I'm now thinking if it's possible to recompile Unity for Debian Wheezy.

I used OpenSUSE for several years now .. some releases were good some were bad but as far as I can see 12.3 64bit is the most polished OpenSUSE release so far!

I'm a SuSE user ever since I know Linux (or computers :P) - my first version was 6.4.
In my opinion, Ubuntu is nothing for experienced Linuxers (but well, that's just my opinion). After trying it out I felt like sitting in a cage and got rid of it again. I've also tried several other distros (Fedora, Mandriva, Arch, Gentroo...) but they were either too unstable or I just missed YaST :)
However, I have to admit that SuSE 10.1 was a real fail ... but in the meantime, the newer versions have gold status for me!

But takes its time to learn how its done, especially when your used to the long explanations on ubuntu wiki :D
