A fun distribution that seems to have lost its way

  • March 23, 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 are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
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.

Standard linux distro

  • July 22, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
I like that openSUSE offers both GNOME and KDE environments. Unlike many Linux distros, it's also pretty accessible to the average user- the graphic-based interface makes learning it a simple affair. With Gnome, though, you also have the option of keyboard-based action, which can be significantly faster for some users. Also, it's pretty cool looking.
What do you dislike?
It's only available in 64-bit these days. Sometimes I like to breathe new life into old laptops that come my way before passing them along, and I often can't use this distro for lack of hardware compatibility and support.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
OpenSUSE provides a free desktop operating system. As such, it solves a number of business needs from Internet access to email to word processing.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
There are so many Linux distros that meet just about every use case. Shop around until you find the one you want. openSUSE is a great choice because it's super flexible and actively developed.

Una de las mejores distribuciones de Linux

  • July 20, 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 are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
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.

Completo,, liviano, grauito ...y CASI perfecto!

  • July 20, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Software 100% libre en cualquier distribución. La seguridad es una de las ventajas más obvias ya que, aunque no al 100% de seguridad, pero no nos vemos afectados por virus. Facilidad de la instalación de los programas
What do you dislike?
Echo en falta algunos programas que no puedo arrancar, como por ejemplo AutoCAD. No tiene un uso tan sencillo e intuitivo como otras suites. Noto una carencia de hardware y juegos y lo más importante, en general es que faltan algunos programas informáticos potentes que son necesarios.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Un sistema muy estable con efectos 3D de escritorio que no le envidia a ningun otro SO. Aunque el desarrollo es rápido, muestra un grado de dificultad por encima de la competencia, aunque cada 8 meses regularmente se liberen nuevas versiones de OpenSUSE.

One of the best os that I have used

  • July 20, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
I found it with an interface so similar to windows and with a high level of customization.
What do you dislike?
That sometimes to install a package, program or driver is hard to do it and when it freexes...
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I used it for university homework and projects, using opengl and webgl for physics simulation.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It's a linux that's so helpful for windows users, if you have never used linux before, this one is your best choice.

LEAP into action with openSUSE

  • July 20, 2018
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
openSUSE has, hands down, the best KDE desktop experience of any distro out there, it has great theming and the defaults are pretty much perfect. On top of that, you have YAST2 for config in a nice visual manner, but can drop down to the command line for either finer tuned control than the GUI gives you or if you’re just more comfortable with it.
What do you dislike?
Getting mono to install the way that I want to has always been less than comfortable, but that is, I think, more on me than openSUSE.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Using openSUSE LEAP to spin up some low powered VMs for PoC servers is really fantastic, that has allowed much greater flexibility to myself and other devs.
