How stable is Tumbleweed? I REALLY don’t like fixed releases and I’m looking forward to install it. I did the upgrade recommended in this apge (which took more than 1 hour to complete) and I haven’t found any problems aside the time it takes to complete the upgrade. Of course, rolling releases will face a problem somewhere down the road, and this is why I’m asking here, looking forward to see the experience of the older users.
I’ve used Debian Testing and Unstable for some time, they break a lot.
I’d use Mint Debian edition but I don’t like how it comes filled with codecs and non-free programs.
Arch, on the other hand, rarely faces a problem, most of which we only need to wait 1 to 3 days (if we didn’t read the news about a bug, before updating). About once a year Arch users will have to manually change something because something on Arch is changing, but everything is documented on a step-by-step guide. So Arch is really good, but it doesn’t support AMD’s drivers, and that’s why I changed to openSUSE, I’m really liking it and decided to stick with it as my one and only system
So, how often do things break? When it happens, how well documented the breakages are? Are there any RSS feed, mail news, or a general news page that I can read before updating Tumbleweed? On Debian, for instance, there’s a tool called “apt listbugs” which list the bugs on ‘bugs.debian.org’ (or something like that) and displays those bugs if they exist in a package the user is trying to update. Is there something similar on openSUSE?
