I believe it's still worth mentioning that SuSE is shipping a 2.6.0-test kernel with the 9.0 distibution as this also means they're shipping modutils etc. that are 2.6-ready.
I'm not completely sure but they also might be shipping additional graphics cards drivers with XFree86, as they've also uploaded a set of precompiled driver updates for their SuSE 8.2 XFree86, e.g. with support for Readeon IGP cards that weren't supported in vanilla XFree86 4.3.0
Hmm... And I believe the distros shipping KDE 3.1.4 might go well with the needs of lots of new users, who like having well-tested, more stable software. The sometimes a bit premature packaging of e.g. KDE 3.0 (dunno about GNOME 2.4 now) is geeky but might distract newbies if the packages might be too error-prone. Not everyone loves living on the edge of development as many of us do ;-)
