My move from Ubuntu 10.04 to Open Suse 11.2 (Updated)

The transition from Conicals Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Edition to Novells OpenSuse 11.2 was an easy one as the built in 3G Modem in my Netbook works out of the box along with. The built in WIFI and Bluetooth, the Web Cam seems to work but as I've not yet found a Web Cam App I've been unable to check if it works..

The KDE 4 desktop is taking some getting used to after using the Gnome desktop of Ubuntu. I've now upgrade the default KDE 4.4.3 to the new KDE 4.4.5 and nothing seems to have changed from the older KDE 4.4.3 that came as standard with OpenSuse 11.2. I've now just got to workout how to get OpenOffice 3.2.1 that I've downloaded from the PornOffice website to download. Will keep you updated on any more developments regarding hardware when I've played around with it more. I've now moved on to the latest OpenSuse 11.3 and nothing much seems to have changed over 11.2. The new KDE 4.4.4 is better than 4.4.3 the only other change that I've noticed is that OpenOffice has now upgraded to OpenOffice 3.2.1 fron 3.1.1. I've now hit a stumbling block as I tried to Upgrade from KDE 4.4.4 to 4.4.5 failed and I've now not got the ability to connect to the Internet, so now I've got to reinstall and then Upgrade to KDE 4.4.5 when I'm at my mums tomorrow and have got access to a propper Internet connection. I'll let you know the details of KDE 4.4.5 when I've Upgraded to it tomorrow. I've got evetthing back working on OpenSuse 11.3 but I can not get wifi to connect at my mums and mobile broadband is to un predictable so to try and do a major upgrade like upgrading from KDE 4.4.4 to 4.4.5 so I'll have to try and upgrade to KDE 4.4.5 when I can get on wifi.
