Well, you can, but it's not a good idea, as it's likely to changer
your user ID, which starts with 1000 in a Debian like system, others
start at 500.

Also, I guess you will want to run KDE too, which makes use of .kde/
most likely (disclaimer: I didn't run SuSE since 7.0...) and a change
in one would have the same effect in the other one too, so if you
would like to test different KDE versions in either that can not work
