openSUSE launches Leap 15 images for Raspberry Pi and Armv7 devices

Following the release of openSUSE Leap 15 for desktops and servers, openSUSE team has unveiled Leap 15 images for Raspberry Pi and Armv7 devices like Beagle Boards, Arndale board, CuBox-i computers, OLinuXino. These releases support the Build to Scale theme initiated by openSUSE team with the Leap images.

openSUSE has plenty of supported arm boards to allow makers to simply create. openSUSE is providing makers the tools to start, run and grow a project on microdevices to large hardware.

The new, fresh and hardened code base that supports modern hardware is stable and offers a full scope of deployments.

Makers can leverage openSUSE Leap 15 images for aarch64 and Armv7 on the Internet of Things (IoT) and embedded devices. Since openSUSE Leap 15 shares a common core  SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) 15 sources, makers who find success with a project or device can more comfortably transition to an enterprise product in the future should certifications become a requirement. Currently, the only IoT platform supported by SLE is the Raspberry Pi 3. However, currently, there is no migration support from Leap 15 to SLE 15 with the Raspberry Pi. The barrier to entry in the IoT/embedded markets is lowered when a developer starts a project with Leap 15. Plus, the many supported arm boards can help developers circumnavigate future obstacles that might hinder project’s growth in a developing market.
