Focus on getting your system installed and running under openSuse with
the openSuse distributions.

I did a mistake, that I could have waited some 14 days to start the
torrent download of openSUSE as it is launching the newer version.

I disagree.

Especially since you're new, stick to 11.4 for a few months.  People
have experience with it.  You can ask questions and get knowledgeable
answers.

When 12.1 comes out in a couple weeks, few people will have the
answers, and there will  be a number of new bugs.  As a new user, you
definitely don't want to be part of that process.

As an example, those of us that run servers typically wait many months
before updating to a new release.  So I for one won't be putting 12.1
on a server until March or later.

The reality is my servers are still on 11.3 and it is now time for me
to move them to 11.4 since it has been out for 7 or so months and the
initial release bugs have been mostly fixed.

I have one server stuck on 10.3 because it relies on a very old
version of Ruby on Rails which is not available on newer installs.
