Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • 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.

I use the system only as a host for my VMs.

Microsoft ended the support of Windows 7 after year 2020. So I searching for an alternative. Of course I get an Ubuntu-based distro. But Meltdown & Spectre changed all rules. I don't liked how slowly the maintainer of my distro works. I use VMware Workstation Pro because I don't like VirtualBox's quality of 3D support. The problem is VMware doesn't support so much host systems.

By the time only Red Hat and SUSE provide a fix of the Meltdown & Spectre problem. I just don't like the level of support of some proprietary things on CentOS/Fedora plus, sorry, but I don't like be a Beta tester with Fedora. Maybe it is very stable, but I think so. So I try OpenSUSE and can say if you wanna a stable secure system. However, I can't say this is easy like Ubuntu.

The system for people who know what to do.

Pros:
- Works very well with Secure Boot, no problems.
- Has the official nVidia repository and drivers.
- Supports QEMU, XEN, VirtualBox, VMware Workstation.
- Has many desktop environments (KDE, Mate, XFCE, etc).
- YAST and Zypper is just amazing for everyone.
- Easy to update and autoupdate (yast2-online-update-configuration).
- Snapshots can help you if something go wrong.
- Helpful manuals about everything on the wiki site.

Cons:
- No default video codecs.
- Not so many apps at all.

OpenSuse 42.3 KDE is very stable and OK for business. It needs a bigger software list like Ubuntu.

Distro, that just works.

Pros:
- surprisingly stable, even with KDE (probably the only distro, that is stable with KDE)
- has quite good installer, that is good for 'newbies', as well as 'professionals'
- has neat YaST utility, that allows to set a lot of things without diving into console and config files.
- packages are quite fresh
Cons:
- some people don't like systemd, so I guess it is a con.
- definitely 'bloated' and not recommended for old machines with not much RAM. (but it is not a light-weight distribution)
- had some issues with DNS settings, but those were easy to fix, and I think they've fixed it in next updates.

In conclusion, it is good distribution for everyone, for newbies, for advanced users. And it feels like German engineering and quality.
