The wait is over and a new era begins for openSUSE
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? :-) .)
