openSUSE Leap is an enterprise grade stability for community

  • August 12, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I like:
+) The stability and version predictability of openSUSE Leap.
+) You can choose from multiple versions of packages to install, for example, Python 3.9 or Python 3.10 - both are supported in one openSUSE Leap version.
What do you dislike?
Not an openSUSE Leap problem, but it took a few hours to get used to the package manager and other system components. It's normal if you switch to another Linux distro.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We use openSUSE Leap to run on virtual servers and we also use it as container base images. It covers our needs in both cases. Servers and containers run stable and have a wide range of packages available in default repositories.

Open SUSE leapDon't have package manager.

It's a good choice for a reliable Linux distro for desktop or server and deserves your serious consideration if you want to get into Linux or change distros for some reason

Free Enterprise grade Linux distribution

  • June 12, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
You can configure many parts of your system from one place and one tool YaST.

Becouse openSUSE Leap shares the source with Suse Enterprise Linux you get a stable system to work and game on
What do you dislike?
Because openSUSE Leap is built to be as stable as possible Leap sometimes doesn't have the newest version of some programs available and can be a bit hard to install.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I use Leap to hobby develop games with the Unreal Engine 5.
For work, I use leap to configure networks and network devices.

By using Leap I get a stable system and if I need help there is a big community that happily will help me out.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you're a user that wants a stable system go with Leap, but if you want the bleeding edge software try out openSUSE Tumbleweed

Good approximation to the SUSE version Enterprise with good performance

  • March 17, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It is a distribution with good stability since it is based on the Linux Enterprise version that tries to offer a solution that allows the deployment of applications and servers. System maintenance and package upgrades are also made easier by using YAST.
What do you dislike?
Using the distribution and configuring it requires more advanced technical skills than a normal user who wants to test the distribution, but doesn't know as much about the ecosystem of tools offered by SUSE, might have.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
One of the main features it offers developers is the use of container-based applications that have become an essential component of cloud computing. At this point, openSUSE Leap aims to be a competent solution in this area, where security updates, the presence of container platforms and orchestrators such as Docker Kubernetes stand out, as well as the possibility of being able to easily migrate a server, a virtual machine or a container.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
openSUSE Leap can be used as a staging environment to run workloads that can later be ported to SUSE Linux Enterprise Linux.

Stable, all drivers always work. had it installed on more than 100 different systems, never had a problem.
What do you dislike?
Nothing, there is literally nothing i don't like.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Replacing windows with leap is straightforward and users that are not familure to linux pick it up right away.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Never worry if its the software or hardware problem.
If leap does not work, it is a hardware problem. Leap is super stable, with great support.

Great Linux distro.

I really love openSUSE but why can't it change from a c5a.4xlarge (for example) to another like c6g.4xlarge? I can't give you the five stars only for this.
Thank you for your great work

A fun distribution that seems to have lost its way

  • March 25, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
OpenSuSE keeps up with the cutting edge of software, providing multiple versions and paths for whether or not you want reasonably stable or absolute bleeding edge. It's pretty easy to get and build software on the platform, and works well as a desktop O/S for a laptop. It also runs well on older hardware that may not be up to the challenge of more demanding operating systems.
What do you dislike?
Between all the M&A activity that parent/sponsor company SuSE has been through over the past decade or two, I think OpenSuSE has gotten lost in the shuffle. It's hard for a company that has to make money to figure out how to fund these things, anyway, and provide the resources for a freely-available and community-supported platform, and I don't think SuSE has done the best job of making this happen in a way that benefits the community using it. Also, the short lifecycle of the releases - about 18 months - can be challenging to keep up with - it's really easy to get 4 years down the road on a version and realize you can no longer get software and updates because you're two major versions back with no support.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I want to run Linux on my laptop rather than Windows so that I can more efficiently manage a large Linux and UNIX landscape.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Be prepared to keep up with the quick pace of updates and major version changes.

Una de las mejores distribuciones de Linux

  • July 24, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Uno de los principales puntos favorables es lo sencillo que es de instalar, en unos pocos pasos ya puedes disfrutar de este excelente sistema operativo, a tal punto, que la facilidad a la hora de reparticionar disco, permiten al usuario poder disfrutar de otros sistemas operativos en el mismo equipo.
Otro punto a tener en consideración es el de la personalización, ya que en el mismo cuenta con varios escritorios, para poder personalizar el escritorio a nuestro gusto.
Adicionalmente cuenta con un amplio soporte por parte de la comunidad y ademas, cuenta con un soporte de hasta 18 meses por parte de los desarrolladores.
Sin duda, uno de los sistemas operativos mas estables y personalizables dentro del mundo Linux.
What do you dislike?
Los principales puntos negativos son los que se pueden conseguir en cualquier otra distribución en base a Linux como son la no compatibilidad con este sistema de algunos programas, juegos e incluso hardware.
Por otro lado, se tiene que tener conocimiento previo sobre el manejo de sistemas en base Linux, ya que esta distribución no esta orientada para usuarios nuevos.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Nos ha permitido crear ambientes seguros para el desarrollo de aplicaciones, pensando en una posible migración a este tipo de sistemas y verificar la compatibilidad de los aplicativos.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Tener conocimiento de instalar aplicaciones en ambiente Linux es primordial a la hora de manejar este software, adicionalmente es necesario tener conocimiento de para que se utilizara este recurso, hogar, empresa o estudio.
