Leap Micro is an ultra-reliable, lightweight operating system built for containerized and virtualized workloads.
This community version is based on SUSE Linux Enterprise Micro, which leverages the enterprise hardened security and compliance components of SUSE Linux Enterprise. This merging of technologies provides for a modern, immutable and developer-friendly OS platform.
Leap Micro offers an offline image. The main difference between the offline and self-install/raw images are that the offline image has an installer. Raw and self-install allows for customization via combustion or manually in the image after it is written to the disk. There is an option for a real-time kernel.
Try Leap Micro in VMs running on either Xen or KVM. Using a Raspberry Pi or other System on Chip hardware may use the preconfigured image together with the Combustion functionality for the boot process. Both preconfigured and self-installed images are intended to be used with Combustion written to a USB, which is driven to allow configuration on any first boot, with the option for default password protected changes.
See our short Leap Micro installation demo with combustion and cockpit. and the documentation.Download

Choosing Which Media to Download
The Offline Image is typically recommended as it contains most of the packages available in the distribution and does not require a network connection during the installation.
The Network Image is recommended for users who have limited bandwidth on their internet connections, as it will only download the packages they choose to install, which is likely to be significantly less than 4.7GB.

Verify Your Download Before Use
Many applications can verify the checksum of a download. To verify your download can be important as it verifies you really have got the ISO file you wanted to download and not some broken version.
For each ISO, we offer a checksum file with the corresponding SHA256 sum.
For extra security, you can use sha256sum to verify who signed those .sha256 files.
