http://opensuseadventures.blogspot.in/2012/04/opensuse-guide-for-ubuntu-users.html Installer The Ubuntu installer excels at simplicity... and that is part of its downfall. That and its instability. Our installer is actually part of our YaST graphical system utility suite. It is old, but always updated, and offers many highly advanced options for your installation. However, it is still simple and attractive enough for anybody with a smidgen of experience. We have a Live CD, and a DVD for openSUSE. The installer differs slightly on the two platforms. If you know your hardware well, use the DVD since it has some more options you may appreciate. I want to point out a few things you may miss, and that I think are particularly nifty ? Instability......never ever did I find Ubuntu or any Debian based installer to ever crash in my lifetime of installing Ubuntu or Debian. This guide is a joke, its a direct attack on Ubuntu, guess SUSE devs now are truly feeling left out in every sense. In terms of simplicity and robustness nothing comes close to dpkg except for Arch's pacman. YAST is a nightmare to manage in terms of installation, managing repositories or general system administration. It doesn't come close to the simplicity of adding a PPA and let all the dependencies and packaging get taken care of automatically. If SUSE wishes to be a popular distro, let them fix all these issues before they embark on direct mud slinging on Ubuntu.
