I'd love to know what's from 10.3 (or earlier) and what's from 11.0 here.
Yast-gtk is from 10.3 and 11.0. PulseAudio/PackageKit/Tasque pushing is from 11.0. Main-menu is from SLE/10.2/10.3, even though I think it should be redesigned from scratch because of the app-browser.
- GNOME is bloated in openSUSE, causing major performance issues
compared to other distributions (see Fedora).
I'm sorry, but each time you say that, I wonder why. I see no major performance difference here. And I'm looking at other distros.
Well, I have no scientific test available, clearly. In my experience (on my laptop and workstations), Red Hat and Fedora has a very responsive gnome, with an evidently lower login time (from authentication to desktop), a faster nautilus (opening/listing files/performing operations) and a lower time required to launch gnome applications in general. I don't know the technical reasons of that, I'm simply reporting what happens.
I think this might be beagle not being enabled by default in Fedora. It is what makes, IMO, the desktop slower. If you disable beagle, it should be as fast as in Fedora. It seems to be for me, as Vincent, I don't see any major difference between my opensuse GNOME and the one in Ubuntu
