My experience is that OpenSuSE is not quite up-to-date, so I'd recommend
going with Ubuntu if you can make the choice now. They seem to have the 2011


For non-Haskell concerns, it seems Ubuntu is nice, since it's built on
Debian, but is maybe a little more user-friendly (in community and software
choices). I found Gentoo not so user-friendly ... I am not one to enjoy
spending time installing operating systems, or building things from source,
even if they run faster [wrt. AMD vs. Intel gcc build options] :).
