State-of-the-art desktop and server operating system
With Tumbleweed you don't have to take difficult decisions about things you value, either freedom or safety, either control or security, technology or stability -- Tumbleweed lets you have your cake and eat it too!Download
You install it once and enjoy it forever. No longer do you have to worry every six months about massive system upgrades that risk bricking your system.
You get frequent updates that not only address vulnerabilities or squash bugs, but reflect latest features and developments, such as fresh kernels, fresh drivers and recent desktop environment versions.
Updates are thoroughly tested against industry-grade quality standards, taking advantage of a build service other Linux distributions envy us. Not only is each new version of a package individually tested, but different clusters of versions are tested against each other, making sure your system is internally consistent.
Simple to Use
With a single command you can update thousands of packages, rollback to last week’s snapshot, fast-forward again, and even preview upcoming releases.
Plays Nice with Your Hardware
Thanks to its leading-edge and thoroughly tested nature, Tumbleweed serves your hardware and devices like few other Linux distributions, making it a superb installment for workstations, laptops and notebooks alike.
Should anything unwanted occur you can always rollback to a previous state and find your files and programs just as they were before a bumpy update.
Built from latest kernel releases, compiled with the latest Spectre / Meltdown mitigation patches, with firewall and strong security policies turned on by default, your security is covered out-of-the-box.
Harnessing technologies openSUSE is renowned for, such as the
Btrfs file-system, the
snapper command-line utility as well as the battle-proven
YaST “control panel”, Tumbleweed empowers you with full control over your system, letting you define the settings you want and be done with it. No longer do you have to worry about a system interfering with your workflow.
Stands on Firm Ground
Tumbleweed builds on decades of usage, testing and debugging by hundreds of power-users, developers, system administrators and demanding doers that cannot afford to jeopardize their workflow. Tumbleweed’s solidity is embodied in many core packages whose DNA stems from the venerable SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.
Tumbleweed provides users with the latest gaming-related software. With the Linux support for gaming improving rapidly, that’s an important aspect for smooth, performant and problem free experience in your favorite games.

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.
