A very stable system, but for home users is better to keep with openSUSE Leap. To use SLED we need to pay for support. But if you want to pay, that´s ok. One down side: there is no KDE Plasma by default on DVD. (but you can install it later)

A stable and orderly construction mechanism, a strong, efficient and standardized community culture, and strong industry partners are the inherent advantages of the SUSE system over other operating systems.
For itself, from a well-organized underlying architecture to a well-structured upper application system, SUSE is a flexible and powerful hardware and data management tool tailored to customers. I have no reason to reject it.
I like yast tools and also zypper. I like SUSE as it's design philosophy that directly promotes the efficiency of users. They do most of the work and configuration, and save users from a lot of trouble. Of course, these cannot exceed some rules of the open source community.
I like it's green logo that I think which means vitality.
