5 Minutes of OpenSuse

Hardware: Dell Latitude C610
CPU: Mobile P3 - M 1133MHz
RAM: 256MB
HDD: 20G
Video: ATI Radeon Mobility M6
Wireless: TP-Link TL-WN321G USB, Ralink chipset
LAN: 3Com 3c905c
Audio: Intel 82801CA/CAM AC97

OpenSuse 10.3 Not the latest, but it's what I had available. What's the point then, you may ask. Shut up, I may respond.
Installation:
Comprehensive. Discovered all Hardware. I had problems with "Addon CD" section, so ended up restarting install and bypassing that part.

Issues found in first five minutes.
Discovered and identified USB wireless device ok, but would not find or connect to the wireless network. Hibernate & Suspend both failed.

Five Minute Goodness:
It's Green from go to woah! No, no, literally green. "Save the planet" - Hah! Like that's going to happen.

It's KDE.

Conclusion:
This post is way too short for conclusions, as was my testing.
