No the live DVD of openSUSE has an installer on it, and has everything you need on it. From an office suite to web browser. The only things missing are the codecs and an image editor. But both are easy enough to install. The installer dvd doesnt include codecs either so you know, no the only difference is that the installer dvd has all the major desktops (gnome, kde, xfce, lxde) and is not a live media.
