Wanted to add yet another appreciation/thank you post. I’ve been wanting to switch from Windows for a long time now, but was always held back by gaming. I finally decided to take the jump a couple months ago thanks to all of the Linux gaming progress over the past couple years! Since then I’ve been distro-hopping to find something that worked well with my setup, which isn’t as easy as I thought it would be with Nvidia Optimus. I gave openSUSE Tumbleweed a shot after seeing that its users seemed pretty passionate about it. Every distro I’ve tried since (Fedora, Nobara, and multiple Arch-based) has seemed like something was “missing.”
The KDE experience is unmatched, imho, and there are tons of features I absolutely loved (YaST, great btrfs support, snapshots, stability, OBS, etc.). Luckily I stumbled upon the root cause of my Nvidia Optimus woes that caused me to switch from Tumbleweed to an Arch-based distro, and finally came back to Tumbleweed! (Turns out
suse-prime was exactly what I needed all along…) It was a fun ride, and I learned a LOT, but everything kind of feels “just right” now that I’m back on Tumbleweed. Plus stability means more time for family, gaming, and developing!
tldr: Been distro-hopping for a couple months and I always seem to come back to openSUSE Tumbleweed. Huge thanks for an awesome (plus stable and user-friendly) distro and community!
