The installer is buggy and gives errors when selecting different package groups.

Only GNOME is available as a desktop.

If you are not in a corporate network and only want to have a workstation at home, there is no benefit in using SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop over openSUSE.

SUSE is the model enterprise distro from which all others should be measured. Out of the box it is security hardened like none of its competition and has many unique features that put it above the others like Btrfs snapshot recovery built in and Yast along with incredible stability and reliability which makes it kind of boring at times because it never breaks so you won’t be spending time fixing issues and all your time getting stuff done. I’m recently retired but have used SUSE on mainframe, power systems, and of course pc’s/laptops and it was rock solid across all platforms. I use SUSE on my home systems now along with its sister distro openSUSE which shares the same qualities and now contains all the SUSE binaries in its new release Leap 15.3 so that is a huge win for the Linux community! Thanks to the SUSE team for all your hard work, I love your software so much I just want to hug my systems, LOL.. : )
