Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I've been using OpenSuse both at home and work for the last ten years. I use my computers mainly for number crunching and writing documents (Latex or other), and Opensuse provides exactly what I need to be able to do this, in addition to anything else I need it to do.

It is stable and fast, and brings older computers (like my 8 year old laptop) to back to life after them having ground to a halt with pre-installed Microsoft nonsense for much of their life. The support is superb, the repositories are full, and the bundled plasma 5 desktop is lovely.

There is the odd niggle.. For example, BTRFS processes running in the background do cause CPU lockup, on occasion, which can be really annoying.

I have never tried another distribution, and so cannot make any comparisons, but given that OpenSuse does exactly what I need, why would I?

It's a nice system, very stable like the others commented.
I would like to say that on some Lenovo computers it set CPU frequency on constant turbo mode
what requires disabling intel_pstate or installing a newer kernel.
The rest work very good. I noticed that it's the only modern distro which makes my laptop works silently.
The partitioning tool is too difficult to a common user so it's impossible to create own table.
It should be changed. The system should be issued with codecs preinstalled, even Debian does it by default.
As for the rest, It's good and I recommend.

Been using for 12 years now, not always as my primary OS - sometimes it went months without being touched! But I can say I've installed a version of each major release of SUSE on each computer and laptop I've had in that time, and it's really nice to see SUSE getting back on it's track!

There was been a couple of years preceding leap where I thought it got a bit too big, a bit too sluggish, and really I started to use it less and less. Fortunately the days of wondering if you installed it on a platter drive by accident are gone, and the performance is right back up there where it should be.

I won't gush, or over hype this, it's really not that different to use than it was 5 years ago, but it's running great these days, Very solid, great support - nearly always one of the first to issue security patches - just the perfet production machine. Highly recommended if you want to stop just tinkering with linux and learn to live with it.
