Thread: A new encounter with OpenSuse

  1. #1

    Default A new encounter with OpenSuse

    I recently installed OpenSuse Tumbleweed on my home desktop (Lenovo Thinkstation couple of years old model). The last time I used Suse 9, it certainly wasn't now. My first impression of it is that it runs surprisingly stably and safely on my machine. Of the Linux distributions, I’ve mostly used Debian-based ones, and in the last few years I’ve tasted the world of Arch. Are there anyone besides me who has returned to Suse / OpenSuse after a long hiatus like me?

    Welcome back.
    OpenSuSE 9 (IIRC that was how it was spelled) was one of the last versions of original SuSE before Novell purchased the technology and did a complete re-architecture. Starting with OpenSuSE 10, the distro was brand new and re-designed from the ground up and was when I started using this distro.

    It was SUSE Linux 9.0 (and preceded by SuSE Linux 8.2).

    I can tell you that I started my Linux career with Suse 6.4 when I was amazed at how well virtual windows can be used and what a different experience it is than the world of Windows. It was around the turn of the millennium when there were four big distros: Debian, Red Hat Suse, Mandrake, and of course Slackware.

    I bought a very early version of SuSE from the University of Toronto bookstore decades ago and used it for some time. I then did move onto Debian Sarge, but I'm glad to be back trying openSUSE out now. I'm impressed so far.
