Despite my biased first impressions, I booted the live ISO provided by open-six. open-six used openSUSE as the basis for it's live CD. It was a bit slow to boot, but truthfully, I didn't really expect it to finish. Afterall, the list of known working devices is short and I was booting on my regular desktop machine with NVIDIA graphics and two monitors. Well, it did finish booting and it even started the Plasma Active desktop. (The desktop was cloned across the two monitors - which is really best-case scenario without proprietary graphic drivers.)
