Just to chime in late, I used to be a SUSE fan, but I left it behind
years ago. Maybe it's improved some of it's flaws since then, but the
problems with managing config files and RPM hell were my main to reasons
for leaving. I love my Gentoo boxen, and as long as I don't do anything
stupid, they love me back.
