Hey all,

One of the questions I am asked frequently: What makes
openSUSE unique among Linux distros?

I think it'd be good to have a list of benefits /
advantages to openSUSE. Note, not looking to say we're
"better" than other distros,
even if we are ;-) just how are we actually *different*
since we ship
about 98% the same software?



most of the benefits of openSUSE have been listed here before. I come from a
Debian/Ubuntu, and after a couple years using Ubuntu with GNOME as desktop, I
switched to openSUSE with KDE 4 because it's really looking amazing, and
promises alot of improved features.
On the other hand, openSUSE has YaST, which manages packages so well, alerting
on dependencies and providing good packages description, besides having lots of
them in the repository, tools for developers and home users are right there.
It's polished look is a real plus and stability is priceless, and I like it's
release cycle, not too short not too long.
I'm a proud openSUSE user and I hope the community around it keeps growing, not
just in numbers but quality.
