I have several comments/questions....
Is it your intention to share /home with all the distributions? I see a
danger ahead since various configuration files in your home directory
will be shared and the distros may not be at the same levels for the
various applications you plan to use. This may lead to very big
headaches and really weird problems.
What is the purpose for doing all of this? Is it just to play with each
distro? That is, not really work? If that is the case, then maybe
you'd be better off using one distro and then having VM's for the others.
I'm a bit surprised you're loading up OpenSuse. You seemed to have just
left the OpenSuse mailing list after having getting into a dust-up over
the purpose of the mailing list. Your last message on OpenSuse was
"Goodbye OpenSuse". Do you still plan to use it and just have given up
on the OpenSuse community?
