The SUSE installation, from a consumer standpoint, is one of the better installers available today.(as of its release) Even though it's always been one of the more needy distros out there in terms of end user input, everything is clear and easy to understand. This time around it's even less needy so I can feel even more comfortable recommending it to new Linux users. That being said, not everyone is at the same level of Linux enlightenment, and for those who still require a helmet there's plenty of context help if necessary. SUSE has pretty much everyone covered here and it didn't go unnoticed. Normally I'm all for building desktop distros with as simple an installer as possible. Let's face it, the most popular desktop operating system in the world, Windows, doesn't have the best installer out there. As a matter of fact, I firmly believe that 90% of the Linux distros available have beat it hands down. It's not really hard to do. SUSE is no exception here either. Although it might be a bit long winded, it's without a doubt easier to use than Windows. This is something many people overlook in their reviews and endless comparisons of Linux vs. Windows and I'm not sure why, so here's one reviewer telling you that modern Linux distros are generally cake to install.
