Linux OpenSUSE
Category: Popular distributions
OpenSUSE, formerly SUSE Linux and SuSE Linux Professional, is a Linux distribution sponsored by SUSE Software Solutions Germany GmbH (formerly SUSE Linux GmbH) and other companies. Its "Leap" version has a common code base and is a direct upgrade option for commercially produced SUSE Linux Enterprise, effectively making openSUSE Leap a non-commercial version of the product for enterprises. It is widely used around the world. The goal of its development is to create useful open source tools for developers and system administrators, while providing a user-friendly desktop environment and a feature-rich server environment.

The first version of the community project was the beta version of SUSE Linux 10.0. The current stable permanent release is openSUSE Leap 15.1. The community project offers an updated version called openSUSE Tumbleweed. It is based on a rolling database of programming code called "Factory". Other tools and applications related to the openSUSE project are YaST, Open Build Service, openQA, Snapper, Machinery, Portus and KIWI.

This stable and versatile distribution is intended for both beginners and advanced users. Its advantage is a few dozen of graphical modules enabling system configuration. It focuses not only on ease of use but also on security. The distribution uses the YAST and RPM package manager. The installation CD contains Firefox, LibreOffice and many other programs. You can choose from a collection of packages that you can install using a friendly wizard.
