OpenSUSE Leap 42.1 Review

The ordinaltechnic portal has published a review of recently released OpenSUSE Leap 42.1, new kind of distribution from openSUSE family that combines power of openSUSE with latest and greatest technologies.

openSUSE's regular release this year, now given the name "Leap" has some major changes designed to increase stability, while providing up-to-date, if not leading edge, software. This change is accomplished by basing the core of Leap on the SUSE Linux Enterprise product, on top of which the openSUSE community can add components that it desires and will maintain.

This change allows the openSUSE product offerings to better complement each other, while meeting the priorities of users. Those who want stability overall can choose Leap, while those who want newer software can choose the rolling release -- Tumbleweed. This doesn't mean that the software included in Leap will be out-of-date, as Leap includes kernel version 4.1.12 (an LTS series), GNOME 3.16.4, and KDE Plasma 5.4.2, but I suspect software such as these may not be updated to newer versions until Leap 42.2, except for security fixes.
