Thread: LEAP 15.1 Just excellent.

  1. #1

    Thumbs up LEAP 15.1 Just excellent.

    I've installed OpenSUSE (15.1 Leap) on a few machines recently, just checking it out. I've used various distros over the years - Slackware, Ubuntu, Kali, Parrot, Mint, Fedora, etc. I have to say this is the best installer and best Linux distro I've used yet.

    What really convinced me was the latest "Hey, I wonder if ..." installation on a Surface Pro 3. I fully expected issues with networking at least, but everything worked fine. Almost everything autodetected and installed with no fuss. ... and it's F A S T.

    On one install (on a VirtualBox VM) there're some issues with Calibre seeing the books in my library, but I think that's down to Dropbox rather than anything inherent in OpenSUSE.

    Looking forward to using this more.

    Looking forward to hearing more about your future experiences!

    If you haven't seen the slide deck for my openSUSE presentation, it describes not only pre-install and and install decisions, it also describes recommended first recommended steps after install, some features you don't find in other distros, more.

    Nice to hear you are satisfied, but this not being a request for help, it will be moved to General ChitChat.

    This is indeed great reading. Users, mainly in forum discussions, remember best the bad times in the 2000s. I refrained from new installations during 2010 -2014. Starting with openSUSE 13.1 substantial improvements were made. Now that openSUSE streamlined their development process the distribution is great again. But they need to improve on spreading the word.

    A far as I am concerned. TSU2's slide should be a MUST READ before a new openSuse users starts an install, and has good information for after the install as well!
    It has some important links to things we all should read.
    HP Compaq desktop Leap15.1 Win10, Win7
    Toshiba laptops Leap15.1 & Win10, HP AiO Win10.
    I can now print with openSuSe Leap! Can Scan now, could be better!!
    I can backup my iPod and iPad with Windows, can't with Linux.(Will get there someday!)
