Welcome to the Distribution Portal edit
The openSUSE distribution is a stable, easy to use and complete multi-purpose distribution.
It is aimed for users and developers working on desktop or server. It's great for beginners, experienced users and ultra geeks, short it's perfect for everybody! openSUSE is also the base for Novell's award-winning SUSE Linux Enterprise products.
The latest release, openSUSE 11.3, features new and massively improved versions of all useful server and desktop applications. It comes with more than 1,000 open source applications.
What features does openSUSE offer you? edit
- Full desktop operating system: openSUSE has everything you need to do your work and play. Browse the web, send email, be online in social, write documents, and much more; all (for) free.
