switched to openSUSE for my laptop and loving it! I finally decided to nuke Windows 7 as it violently protested any form of dual-booting, and attempting to install Linux Fedora broke my MBR.

openSUSE felt pretty weird at first having far less software support than the more mainstream distros I had used previously, but after some research and getting used to I prefer it to others. It is both fast AND pretty, and yast is just beautiful.
