Personally I prefer suse but my advice is go with whichever you're happiest 
with using! 

I found any advantages to any one specific distro are overshadowed by not 
being used to it, where config files were kept, where (and what) the (distro 
specific) system tools were etc.

There are probably more users using fedora (thanks to Jarods HOWTO) than suse 
but there are still plenty of happy suse users.

Oh and if you don't feel like compiling from source you can use apt to install 
on OpenSuSE 10, just put 
rpm http://folk.uio.no/oeysteio/apt suse/10.0-olsen Olsen 
in your sources.list
