Six months with openSUSE

I am happy to announce that I have been very pleased with openSUSE TW in which I had jumped into head first due to an on going issue I had with KDE Neon and also after watching Episode 267: Are Specialty Distros Bad For Linux?. I decided to give openSUSE a shot and with the help of @CubicleNate’s helpful info on his site, I have fallen in love with Linux all over again. Big thanks to everyone in the forum, and at Destination Linux. Just thought I would share an update on the journey with openSUSE. I have used Linux for a little over 20 years and this is one of the best experiences with a distro I have ever had.


That is fantastic news! I appreciate you sharing this as it is encouraging to know that something you do is beneficial to someone. :slightly_smiling_face: I don’t consider openSUSE the best distribution for first-time-user experience but if you want a Linux distro that you can shape and mold easily into various functions, I truly think it is the best choice. The other fantastic thing about openSUSE Tumbleweed is that you can be a poorly disciplined sys admin and not update a computer for many, many months and one sudo zypper dup later and you are back to an updated rolling distro.


I am now at the one year mark with openSUSE Tumbleweed even though I have switched machines. My newest piece of hardware is rocking it.
