|Gnome Shell 3 on OpenSuSE with Nord Shell theme and Sonar GTK theme|
Then I downloaded OpenSuSE 11.4 (KDE) and installed it. Though it was very polished, I found that some times the user interface lagged. Having been used to the smoothly functioning interface of Ubuntu, I started hating it eventually. Then I tried installing Gnome 3 and liked it instantly.
Then yesterday, I felt like upgrading to Gnome 3.2 and downloaded the live iso from the www.gnome.org. After installing it, I found that there were some rough edges to Gnome 3.2. So, I downloaded OpenSuSE 11.4 Gnome version and installed it and found it perfect for my requirements. Now I am off Ubuntu for sometime atleast.
