Re: [opensuse] 13.2 vs Leap vs Tumbleweed
Frans de Boer composed on 2016-02-06 12:53 (UTC+0100):

Leap is now around for some time, so I wonder if it is stable enough
nowadays to be used instead of 13.2. The later is kind off showing his age.

I waited over a year to upgrade my primary machine from 11.4 to 13.1,
proceeding to 13.1 only after 13.2 was released, in order to eventually take
advantage of Evergreen. It was not my favorite upgrade. The only upgrade I
preferred to the prior version was one of 10.2, 11.0 or 11.2. All were too
long ago to remember.

Less than a month after release of 42.1 I "upgraded" from 13.1 to it (via
fresh install to different / on md filesystem). I'm glad I did.

On my primary machine the only DE I used and use is KDE3. I use 8 virtual
desktops, each with unique wallpaper, something impossible with other DEs I
have any familiarity with. I run 7 different windows of 5 different Mozilla
products 23.9/7 (I shut the primary down briefly daily to back it up
separately), and at times 1 or 2 or even 3 additional. Other than the
Mozillas, the only non-KDE3 apps I use are Gimp, LO, and various MM apps from

For me, 42.1 on this machine seems as stable as anything I've ever used.
