Used Manjaro for about a year without any issues then both my laptop and desktop crashed due to a update issue on Manjaro....went distro hopping and saw GECKO rolling and decided to give it a spin...so far so good . I love the cinnamon desktop so that was a huge selling point for me and like Manjaro this is a rolling release that was also a huge plus. I've never used Opensuse before so this is a learning curve for me and so far I find it pretty straight forward. I don't know how others feel about ARCH but if your tired of crashes and bad updates and still want a rolling release I believe you have found a great one with Gecko.
PROS: (1) WAS EASY TO SET UP AND CUSTOMIZE....
(2) IS A ROLLING RELEASE
(3) NOT BASED ON ARCH
CONS: (1) DON'T LIKE HAVING TO ENTER A PASSWORD EVERY TIME I TURN MY COMPUTER ON. CAN'T FIND THE SETTING FOR AUTO LOGIN SO I DON'T HAVE TO TYPE THE PASSWORD IN EVERY TIME.
I wanted to get away from upgrading but at the same time have the latest kernel plus have Cinnamon not on top of something else. Pretty much came down to Gecko or Arch and Gecko is less complicated.
Seems much faster than Fedora. I get the same security advantage with Firejail when used with AppArmor as I would with Ubuntu. I really enjoy all the options with YaST, still learning all that has to offer.
Cons? I couldn't get LUKS to configure which may have been user error on my part during install though I've had no issue on Fedora or Ubuntu - those are cookie cutter installers.
This is the best of one Linux distribution.
Great automatic detection hardware and I have no issue about Gecko Linux.
I am impressive about this. So, my opinion about this distribution is for a review this:
2. Many flavor for Desktop Environment, I am using XFCE
3. Daily use
4. User Friendly, with many flavor of Desktop Environment, it easier for people want to try, leaning and adaptation for Linux
5. I have no problem about software packages or hardware
I am your typical distro hopper and been for the last 10 years.
Here's my take on Gecko.
I have using Gecko for two months now without any issues, rebooted once, didnt seem to make any difference, it still was fast.
It is simple to use and very quick.
Firefox starts and runs faster on Opensuse than other Linux distro's, not sure why but I am not complaining.
There are a lot of good Linux distro's available.
For now, I'm going to stick with Gecko.
Certain programs that I use are not in the 'standard' repository which means that I must install them (and their individual repositories) separately. This generally does not cause conflicts but it does cause some 'head-scratching' when choices must be made during updating. But, all in all, GeckoLinux is by far my favorite of the rolling release type of GNU/Linux operating system.
This is what's needed for an (almost) perfect Linux install. Has a lot of extra drivers for instance Broadcom and printer drivers that so often is making problems. This is one of the best if not THE best one to try Linux without (drivers) issues :)
