  • 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 "plasma-desktop" package 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.

openSUSE is one of my favourite distros.

It is probably not known as the most lightweight out there, yet today I've managed to install Leap 15.6 on a really old Acer Aspire One. I believe this machine is from 2011. The CPU is a Intel Atom, and it has only 1 Gigabyte of RAM!

I failed to install a few distros on this machine, since they rely on modern desktop environments, from which one can launch an installer. I managed to install Debian, since it comes with a text installer. Then I decided to give openSUSE a shot, since I like it better when it comes to user experience.

I had in my hands a USB drive with a regular live distro (XFCE build). As seen before, running it with full GUI became unbearably slow, even with reasonably lightweight desktop environment such as XFCE.

I figured I could start the distro with the multi-user target (feasiblle by specifying 'systemd.unit=multi-user.target' as boot parameter). Then, without the hindrances of a GUI, I could easily run the installer (it is a script under /sbin).

The "Generic Desktop" System Role results in a minimal desktop environment which is suitable for older hardware. Now I have a little laptop with a little openSUSE installation, and a polished minimal dekstop based on IceWM.

I've been using TW for a couple of years now, and it became my go-to distro. Anything and everything else feels subpar. openQA, snapper, yast, and KDE being first class citizen is what sold me on it. Just the usual things that i among others love.OpenSUSE Tumbleweed is a fantastic rolling release distribution. It keeps my system up-to-date with the latest software without sacrificing stability. The Zypper package manager is efficient and easy to use, and the flexibility to choose different desktop environments like KDE or GNOME is a big plus. The community is incredibly supportive and the regular security updates give me peace of mind. Whether for development or daily use, Tumbleweed consistently impresses with its reliability and cutting-edge features. Highly recommended for anyone looking to stay on the forefront of Linux technology!

It is a stable rolling distribution in my experience that loses much of that stability when you add the packman repository to have the proprietary codecs.
The solution would be to install opensuse Tumbleweed and instead of adding the packman repository, install the applications through flatpack, but for this situation I think the best option is to install opensuse Aeon.
It has tools that are not configured in any other distribution, such as Yast and snapper. Yast is an efficient graphical control panel but with a visual aspect of 20 years ago. Snapper is a marvel and although it can be configured in other distributions (Arch, Fedora,...) in opensuse it is ready to use as soon as the system is installed. Thanks to snapper I have returned to previous snapshots in the various dependency conflicts I have had with the packman repository.
In short, opensuse tumbleweed is recommended but without adding the packman repository.
