Basically SuSE is handling four projects at once.

1) New Kernel

2) New KDE desktop

3) New Xfree86 4.x

4) New LSB compliant file system.

It may very well be that you will have to wait for the next SuSE release for
all features to be easily useable. I think SuSE is doing a fine job at
juggling all these projects. I compare the present inconveniences to my
(happily) brief experience with M$ Windows 3.1 and I must say SuSE is doing a
a much better job at managing these new technologies. My advice is to be
patient and not insist on "bug for bug" compatibility with Windows.
