Well, I for me being little more adventurous, I'm using all the great 
new stuff from KDE:Distro:Factory / openSUSE_11.4 :-)

But she, getting everytime almost a heart attack when something goes not 
in the usual way with her computer, I need a smooth update regime. 
Problem with this kind of broken packages is, that it is not get noticed 
that something went wrong. The automatic update via kpackagekit goes 
through without any warning.
