openSUSE 12.2 with MATE - Not bad at all

I promised another review of openSUSE 12.2 Mantis, and here it is. This time, we will see how well openSUSE copes when flavored with the MATE desktop environment, a complete refork of the good, ole Gnome 2.

Last time, things were not completely rosy. There were tons of problems, and although they lessened to some degree with the installation of the alternative desktop over the Gnome 3 crapola, they did not resolve some of the fundamental issues I have seen. But it's like Fedora. I was somewhat lukewarm about what the distribution could offer me, but slowly transitioning from Xfce through KDE to the greatness of Cinnamon, I finally polished out the bugs and warmed up to the distro. Let is see whether openSUSE can offer the same level of comfort. Second chance, MATE desktop, follow me.
