Also make sure you update everything before you install the GPU drivers (install the kernel updates etc first).
Happy Linux-ing!!!
Actually, Suse integrates better with KDE. It's easy to tell that Suse is made to work with KDE more than it is with GNOME. Take the start menu for example. For the GNOME menu, you have to click and open up a whole window just to see your all your applications.

But you're right; GNOME works better with Compiz-Fusion.

A distro is like a make of Linux.
But most distros are based off of other distros.

Basically we have
Debian ~ Vista Basic
Ubuntu ~ Home Premium
Mint ~ Ultimate

That's not accurate at all to the original poster... I know what you're trying to say, but you don't want him taking what you said literally.

I would actually think of Ubuntu/Mint/etc as "remixes" of Debian lol
