OpenSUSE 11.3, the best binary KDE distribution or best KDE distribution?

Filed under
KDE
Gentoo
SUSE

I have been using Gentoo for a few months and it has been a good experience but generally I can't see myself continuing to use it.

Gentoo has lost its appeal on the performance front because for many users the gain ranges from minor to negligible. When you also take into consideration to time it takes to setup / update Gentoo, it simply isn't worth it.

Infact what is the general consensus concerning Gentoo today?

Is it about performance or control?

Interestingly, OpenSUSE 11.3 was released not so long ago and the performance is very nippy. If you haven’t tried it, I suggest you do.

My utter disappointment with OpenSUSE 11.2 (it was very sluggish) is what made me try out Gentoo.

Funnily enough, OpenSUSE 11.3 has changed some of my thoughts about Gentoo.
