Hi there, my first time here.
I was a casual listener in the past, a post by Richard Brown, openSUSE chairman, pointed me here again.
Very great show indeed - pretty unfair to challenge a new user to run E19 but it resulted in a funny nice part of the show.
I shortly resume my Linux/openSUSE experience.
At beginning 2013 I moved from Xp to Xubuntu and then I distro hopped a lot with a remarkable preference for Debian and some love for Fedora.
On June 2014 I installed Arch and kept it running till August.
Meanwhile, I spent a full day in breaking and fixing openSUSE trying to install Mate on a barebone net installed system and discovering it I kept loving it.
On September I got a new job and I got pretty busy too: I leaved Arch for openSUSE 13.1, looking for a decently up to date and maintenance effort free system. It was.
I updated to 13.2 when it was released and eventually, on Jannuary this year, to Tumbleweed.
During this openSUSE period I ran KDE, Gnome, Xfce - each and every of these DE very well deployed. At present I’m on Gnome.
Tumbleweed is stable and pretty up to date: I have always the latest and greatest packages with no maintenance effort.
openSUSE selling points to me are:
the installer, the best one in the Linux world
yast, a powerful sysadmin GUI tool
zypper, very powerful package manager
the OBS, together with the 1-click install
TBH I spent some time in collecting resources and in understanding how openSUSE and its tools work, I’m still learning things about it today, however once I got used to it I started finding it amazing indeed.
If someone is interested in, I can post my new comer resources list.
