The reason many end-users are divided is because these desktops have their own ways of doing things, not necessarily because they don’t compete in the same market. I also can’t agree with your view point of comparing Cinnamon, Unity and GNOME. They all compete in the same ‘space’ where the primary end-users are the desktop (laptops included) computer users.
So far, I’ve also never seen any core system utility or any user application crashes on both these operating systems either. So other than the touch-pad related issue, all the rest of the hardware (display screen, audio etc) and software has worked excellently on both operating systems.

From a security point of view, it is recommended to use SSH for logging into a remote machine instead of user and password in plain text format. But having to memorize the user and password specially if you try to use a strong non predictable password is also hard and hard to maintain.
So also YaST has to adapt and modify its NTP client module to work with chrony. The module also shows its age and it is a bit hairy, so we took the opportunity to do some cleaning. It was decided that it is a good time now to switch the Network Time Protocol (NTP) implementation from ntpd to chrony as it is more secure, nicer and better.
It’s lean, fast, stable, responsive and Cinnamon is a wonderful desktop to use. That’s the summary of my Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon review.
Fedora Workstation is built on GNOME (now version 3. If you’re interested in other popular desktop environments like KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon, and more.
Of course, that new format is not something for the YaST team do decide on its own, but something being designed openly in collaboration with all the involved parties. To make easier for anyone to jump into the subject we have prepared this detailed document which includes all the present and historical information to understand the topic, as well as an explanation of the new format with several examples based on existing or hypothetical use cases.
So we have removed it from YaST and let the localectl tool to set both keyboard setting automatically. Another related change was that YaST not only set the console keyboard but also constructed the keyboard settings for X11 (GUI). But this is actually a duplicated functionality, localectl itself includes this feature.
Obviously for unregistered systems only the second option makes sense. In that case you need the “SLE15 Installer” medium and additionally also the “SLE 15 Packages” medium. The rest is available either via the registration server or via the extra medium. The installer medium contains only the minimal packages for installing just a very minimal system.
As we remind quite often, all the products supported by YaST (SLES, SLED, Leap, Tumbleweed, Kubic, CaaSP, SUSE Manager, SLES4SAP, you name it) share an identical installer. Xml that is included in the media and that allows to define the sequence of installer steps, the default values and much more. That installer is fully configurable using the file control.
In the following screenshot you can see the corresponding step of the guided setup for the mentioned KVM/Xen role, in which the classical controls for the /home and Swap partitions have been replaced by more goal-specific volumes defined in the section of the control file describing the role.
