Re: [opensuse] 13.2 vs Leap vs Tumbleweed

Yes, TW is a playground, something always breaks. Which is fine, TW
users know about and (presumably) don't have to rely on it.

I've stopped my testing of Leap after finding it sort of unstable, well, more
broken than unstable, I guess, as I had the sense not to install BTRFS.

I figured I'd get back to leap in a of point releases, or the EOL of 13.2.
I have to say that 13.2 is one of the better releases I've seen from Opensuse.

In Leap's place, I've been testing the KDE/Plasma5 version of Manjaro.
Since Manjaro is based on Arch, and Arch is a rolling release, you would
not expect it was targeted at the same user base as Leap.

But I've been very presently surprised.
Its utterly stable, very robust, and they don't seem to push broken stuff at me,
other than they have two installers, one beta, and it does not allocate disk
properly, and another that is shared with several other distros, which does
a fine job.
