Tumbleweed tries the best to provide all the new,

That answers my question about how many corporations are using TW.
Though to be honest, I want to update my linux system about as often
as I change Win OS's. Win 7 was out for about 12 years w/support. I was
an early adopter and am still using it. But never was Win7 keeping me
from using new programs (well until recently). How many progs from
an opensuse release from 2008 would work on a system from today?
This comes from openSUSE 10.2 - which was released in 2006; so 15 years
ago. The package installs just fine - and runs.
So - case proven? can we move on now?
