I'm about to install SLED, again, after having a HORRIFIC experience
with openSUSE 13.2... and I mean, absolutely HORRIFIC: I've worked with
Linux, personally and professionally, 6 months after it was released in
the wild up until today; there were a few couple year gaps here and
there, to be sure, but I'm not new to the installation process.
openSUSE 13.2 had me stumped and I never once got it working. </rant>

What I am wondering: Is SLED 12 a marked improvement over SLED 11 SP3?
I'm not a fanatic for GNOME 3.x and was hoping SLED 12 would go a
different route; however, since it did not, I'm trying to decide if I
will stick with SLED 11 SP3 or SLED 12.

Can anybody please share their thoughts with SLED 12, as compared to 11
SP3? I would certainly love to hear about what applications that are or
are not available for 12.

I use both... but do prefer GNOME shell these days. What is your
hardware and GPU?

I'm running arduino (the tarball version in ~/ just had to
add my user to dialout group for access to /dev/ttyUSBn

I use the fluendo codecs for multimedia as well as a few of my own
packages on OBS.

What specific packages are you wanting to run?
