|Desktop Training - OpenSuse|
My first impression of OpenSuse with KDE was a good one. A mix of visual surprises, quick loading windows, and a sense of snappiness was all it took to get me hooked. The first thing I noticed about OpenSuse and KDE was the ktip that was presented to me upon startup. Here i was shown a tip for using KDE and i was able to browse additional tips by clicking the Next and Previous buttons at the bottom. You may also stop tips from showing on startup by unchecking the checkbox on the bottom left.
Here are the icons on my OpenSuse desktop.
The OpenSuse KDE menu offers visual flare and unique accessibility. After clicking on the OpenSuse icon on the bottom left side of the OpenSuse KDE desktop you will see the a search filed at the top of the menu and five different categories at the bottom. Between the search and category sections in the middle of the menu is where the menu items are listed. The favorites category contains Firefox, Kontact, Amarok, digiKam, the Home folder, personal settings, the KDE help center and Konsole which is a Terminal program.
Clicking on Applications brings up sub categories Games, Graphics, Internet, Multimedia, Office, System, and utilities all of which are filled with applications specific to each category.
Under computer we can change admin settings, install new software, check system information, and we have access to system folders like Home, My Documents, and Network folders.
The History tab shows us where we've been for quick and easy access to the past.
If we click on the Leave tab we have access to all of the options we could want for shutting down, restarting, logging out, locking the computer, switching users, suspending the disk, placing the system on standby and more.
