Downloading now. GNOME edition.

It is sad to the KDE version is already tailing one release. The same will be true for GNOME in a month.

openSUSE 12.2 released

Generally, latest releases of KDE can be installed on openSUSE pretty easily via the Open Build Service. I don't know what the state of that is currently - I'm not a KDE guy - but I'm pretty sure they'd be able to point you in the right direction on the mailing lists.

Enabling newly built OBS sources kind a defeats the purpose of having a well tested distribution. Besides it would not be fair to openSUSE since they fought so hard to do this release. GNOME just seem to be the better fit for having a well tested and yet new desktop.

Tumbleweed will soon come to your rescue on 12.2 too ;-)

As Zonker says, latest KDE is available in the openSUSE Build Service. This release date fell on the knife edge between KDE releases, and then the delay extended it past the 4.9 release. Since the delay was to add stabilization, rushing 4.9.0 in was a bad idea.

I recommend you wait until tomorrow then add KDE:Release:49 repo (http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/4...) as 4.9.1, released yesterday, is now building vs openSUSE 12.2. This has a lot of fixes vs 4.9.0.

Im looking for a combination of new and well tested. GNOME seems like a natural choice for now. Maybe I will test in a month when GNOME 3.4 is "obsolete" like KDE 4.8 and KDE 4.9 is smoke tested.

I've run KDE 4.9 with OpenSuse 12.2 for more than a month now -- without a single problem. I'll update to 4.9.1 tomorrow, but I found 4.9.0 very stable and very good.

Thank you for not succumbing to Mandriva syndrome. Solid release > absolutely latest versions.

I have it on good authority that GNOME 3.6 will be released in an 'official' repository by the end of September. Then GNOME will be current; and 3.6 is the most exciting release since 3.0.
