I am [Hanjingxue](https://whiteboard-ui8.pages.dev/about/about-me/), and I have been using openSUSE for some time. I have one suggestions for openSUSE’s LiveCD file.
Like the Fedora community, changing the use scenario of Live ISO, so that the Live ISO file can be used for offline installation systems.
The application scenarios and original intentions of the DVD iso file (ie, openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Current-Media.iso) are good. However, in order to cram in as many packages as possible, the entire ISO file is very large (about 4.3GB)
So, some people recommend downloading LiveCD or net-install iso for streamlined installation. This is also a good proposal, but there are still shortcomings, that is, the Live iso file provided by openSUSE can really only preview the desktop environment and cannot be used for offline installation systems.
Although the online installation system can make the system in the latest state immediately after the installation is completed, and does not require additional adjustment of the software package. However, the above scenarios assume that the user has a good network connection. Once the network is congested, the network bandwidth is limited, or the connection quality of the downloaded mirror is not good, the experience of using live iso will decline rapidly.
Users who experience a poor installation experience due to poor network quality may only choose to download the full ISO file (downloading such a large file is not a very easy task.) at this time. DVD iso is not only large in size, but also updated frequently (about five times a week). Not all files are necessary for users (for example, KDE users don’t need GNOME DE packages), but they are inevitably included in DVD iso files. Between the big DVD iso and the minimal net-install iso, openSUSE does not provide an iso file that is lenient about network quality, like Fedora-KDE-Live-x86_64-*.iso.
Therefore, I suggest that openSUSE should make some changes like fedora, so that the live iso file can be used for offline installation.
