Man, Crunchbang Linux was great. And so beloved. It lives on in many hearts. And distros.

A nice review of OpenSUSE Tumbleweed, the rolling-yet-stable version of OpenSUSE. I used OpenSUSE for a while and I really liked it. And the rolling aspect remains intriguing.
This is interesting because SUSE stepped in to hlep with hardware. I think a lot of companies are interested in the idea of rolling releases.
openSUSE Leap is a brand new way of building the openSUSE regular release Linux distribution.
openSUSE Leap will be based on the core of SUSE Linux Enterprise. The first Leap is scheduled for release in November 2015.
openSUSE is doing some interesting things, going super stable with Leap and rolling with Tumbleweed.
I haven’t used it in a while but I’m thinking I need to very soon.
I’m in favor of anything that simplifies distro names and concepts.
This is interesting:
“The openSUSE Project today announced the development version of openSUSE (called Factory) has become
an independent distribution using the “rolling release” development model. This means Factory is no longer just the
development branch of openSUSE – the reliable, modern and easy-to-use multi-purpose Linux operating system – but a
tested and stable fresh-daily bleeding-edge distribution.”
I haven’t used Factory and I’m not sure how it differs from Tumbleweed, but the idea of a very stable rolling release that has more recent packages than Debian Testing is pretty intriguing.
