With Ubuntu sucking all the air lately, other distributions can't seem to get mentioned.

openSUSE 12.3 went Gold Master today and is scheduled for wide public release next week, March 13. To that end, Jos Poortvliet, openSUSE Community manager, posted a sneak peek of the upcoming desktops. Those include "GNOME Shell, KDE Plasma, Xfce, LXDE and the brand new E17."
