I haven't seen any other opinions on this one.

As you asked for opinions:
I use Leap as a Desktop operating system.
I need a system which is working reasonably stable so it does not keep
me from doing my actual work.
On the other hand I need a system which has reasonably recent software
packages so e.g. interoperability with users of other systems is mostly
What I expect from a "distribution" is to offer most of the tools I
need recent and stable enough to do my work. I am not interested to
install package A from home-repo X and package B from
home-repo Y ... to build a system myself which does what I need. I am
glad the contributors to Leap do this for me - thanks!
That said I am quite satisfied with Leap as it is now.
Originally I was very sceptic about the approach to combine the
typically "aged" versions of an enterprise distribution with recent
desktops and desktop software, but for me it works.
It is probably comparatively easy to provide "the newest
software" (like TW does), but almost impossible to provide absolutely
stable software for all use cases.
