openSUSE Desktop Distributions
The two distributions to rule them all (now in green!)
Many desktops, three by default
The openSUSE contribution process empowers desktop development for everybody, so you have the choice to pick your favourite one in the installer. We actively feature three desktop environments, and offer even more in the expanded software view within the installer.
Getting software couldn't be easier
Between us, having to go through every website to get all the software you might need is a lot of work. The online software center makes this way easier, by incorporating software from a plethora of sources in one place.
Everything is transparent
From start to finish, every package which goes into the distributions has all of its sources and build scripts openly visible for everyone to see. Doubtful of a source? Just check it out on the build service.
Free software? Your choice
Packages in the distributions are divided into free and non-free repositories. Don't want to use non-free packages? You can easily disable the non-free repository. It's your choice, not ours.
We try our best to please the community, and we can only make this happen when the community is vocal about what they need. That's why we ensure contributing is as easy as possible.
YaST, the best choice for the
One of the greatest system configuration tools helps you, the user, to setup every single aspect of your system. You no longer need to go through a plethora of configuration scripts or enter dubious commands to get the system setup as you need it.
System got corrupted? Not a problem anymore
The Filesystem Snapshots feature keeps your filesystem in check by having continuous backups performed automatically when installing software and updates. Just boot from an earlier snapshot and bring your system to a working state in the matter of minutes.
