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 have been an openSUSE/KDE fan since version 11.1 (2008). I have never tried to move to other distros, because I'm very happy with openSUSE. As it was said before, it is a very stable system and provides a huge list of available software. I would recommend it for novice and experienced users.

I have been very happy with openSUSE since version 9.x. Sure, I have installed and used many distributions, but always come back. It has been extremely stable, and provides a huge list of available software. I like that I can install multiple desktops, and that I have the ability to run the application I like such as a Gnome application in a KDE desktop or a KDE application in Gnome. openSUSE has, hands down, the best support forums, and that's a huge factor!

If there is any downside, it's that there isn't built in support for some of the common multimedia formats. But there's an easy workaround. so it's not a big problem.

So, after all these years, I've given up on trying different distributions and am using openSUSE exclusively. I don't even own a copy of Windows anymore.. Oh wait, I think I have a Win 7 laptop around here somewhere but I haven't seen it in quite a while.

Installed flawlessly, working so and so on a 9 year old Lenovo laptop.
Refuses to install on a 2 year old Acer laptop, getting stuck on various points before the graphic interface. 12.3 does NOT have this problem.

PRO:
- lots of GUI managers;
- still running on older hardware;
- rock solid security;
- YaST still is the coolest way to have all settings in a single place. The fact it works in shell had saved me countless times.

CONS:
- bloated with a lot of useless stuff;
- seems to be picky with hardware when it comes to installation;
- software manager lets you shoot yourself and it's way too easy for a novice to uninstall critical components, including the kernel itself :) (I did that a few times to learn things);
- software update has a lot of pitfalls and sometimes does not get everything (again, easy to confuse and frustrate a new user).

openSUSE is a great tool for a sysadmin or at least a moderate knowledge user, but a real pain for the regular guy who only wants it to work without hassle. I was using it since the 10.3 release, 12.3 being my favorite. From that release things went down to the point I got fed up of tweaking, changing and repairing stuff which didn't work, ending up with installing Linux Mint on the Acer. I already like it more than openSUSE, but I truly miss YaST.
