The wait is over and a new era begins for
Contributors, friends and fans can now download the first Linux hybrid
distro openSUSE Leap 42.1. Since the last release, exactly one year
ago, openSUSE transformed its development process to create an
entirely new type of hybrid Linux distribution called openSUSE Leap.
Version 42.1 is the first version of openSUSE Leap that uses source
from SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) providing a level of stability that
will prove to be unmatched by other Linux distributions.
Right, so it has now been released into the wilds of the IT jungle.
But I do note that the announcement wasn't even sent to the 'main'
openSUSE list called opensuse(a)opensuse.org where every man and his
dog go to find information.
There is also mention of Tumbleweed - which raises another good
question: will Tumbelweed ever come out of the closet and be given
the proper respect it deserves or will it be still only be whispered
about in the mystic land called FACTORY and the only time 'we' will
hear about TW is when an announcement is made that a new "snapshot"
- worth 4.4GB of data - has been released? (Mention Tumbleweed in
HELP and you will get a clip behind the ear from Patrick - or will
this now change? :-) .)
Tumbleweed is a rolling release and so ... there will not
huge leaps for Tumbleweed, just continuous rolling ;)
Just like that great song, "Ol' Man River, He just keeps on rollin'
Only a fool would continue to download the entire DVD for every release,
are you the fool BC? That's what zypper dup is for!

Exactly. Just this morning I upgraded TW and only needed to download 142
packages included a couple dozen from packman. Far, far less then the
4.4G you suggest.
Please Basil, stop all of the negativity you are spouting on the lists,
I believe many on the lists are getting very tired of it. With all of
the problems you are reporting the main problem is starting to look like
it lies somewhere between the chair and the keyboard.
SuSe since Version 5.2, June 1998
