May I ask in what way?

At the moment I'm finding it pretty much like any distro using KDE except for the menu system which I can't decide whether I like or not.

I like and prefer open suse, i don't see what the big deal about ubuntu is. I mean really they are all just another linux distro IMHO. The thing I like about suse is its package manager, which runs just like apt, but its gui based. YAST manager is great too.

I have a kubuntu machine as well

The thing about Ubuntu is the huge community, the more people that join, the more help there is, the more help sites get setup, the easier things become.

I can't really try YAST from the Live DVD. When I last installed openSUSE it was 10.1 and YAST was buggered.

How does YAST compare to Ubuntu's Synaptic?

This is kde-core installed on Ubuntu.

The menu is kickoff (SUSE Menu) and Window Decorations are done by Emerald.

Emerald theme is a modified Dark_Blue originally by karma.police. I haven't got a link, should be in either emerald-themes or emerald-themes-extra. All I did was decrease the opacity.

Wallpaper I got from here: http://www.xshock.de/ (click artwork -> wallpaper)

kickoff is from HERE

It's Ubuntu with KDE.

Ubuntu comes with GNOME and Kubuntu comes with KDE but you can install any desktop environment you want on either one of them.

If you like that screenshot then you would want Kubuntu.

http://www.kubuntu.org/

Yes it's free.

openSUSE is also free, see my screenshots a page back.
If you're a new user then I would suggest you give openSUSE 10.2 a try first, it's one of the most professional looking distros I've seen.
