My choice (how I voted) for openSUSE's new logo.
Surprisingly, the best experience I had (so far) with the KDE environment was with #opensuse tumbleweed
Not to mention that sadly, @landley is right:
And sadly that is a problem that only few [i.e. #Canonical at least does] adress [on their core product @ubuntu LTS Desktop - even tho @opensuse / #OpenSUSE's #YaST may be seen as easier to work with for entry-level #Sysadmins since it's a better reimagination to the #Windows Control Panel]...
Huh, so I updated #OpenSUSE #Tumbleweed today and it would only give me a terminal after reboot. I figured it's probably because I might have done a couple of updates in the past week without rebooting. So I rolled back a week with Snapper (yay). However, I still only get a terminal after updating now. Have no idea how to fix so I guess I'll just wait and see if a future update fixes it automagically. 😐
Picked up a #ThinkPad T480 on the bay last week to use as a backup laptop. And whoah, I already prefer it to my XPS. After using the T480 for a couple of days, I'm in love with the keyboard. The trackpad is also better than the XPS's. With #OpenSuse Aeon installed, it's a very capable laptop for not a lot of money.
#opensuse 这个打包，用的是自己做的 VCS，真的难用
然后现在 arm 系的 build server 一片红，全在打包，一堆 blocked 和 scheduled
osc branch osc checkout nvim _service osc service manualrun osc add osc rm osc diff osc commit osc bl osc sr
Alright everyone! Meet my #server Ada! Named after Ada the countess of Lovelace! She's a combination of all the loot I got the other day, and yes, she is a bit of a mess. But she runs! Her #linux system is installed! I went with #opensuse and I'm excited to get her online after some tender care! The journey doesn't end here though! With the other machines I'm going to build a #cluster for her!
Wer wie ich gerne das Werkzeug pre-commit nutzt, dieses aber lieber über den Paketmanager der Distribution als über pipx oder ähnliche Alternativen macht, kann es auf #openSUSE #Leap jetzt wieder aus dem Python-Backports-Repository installieren. 😎
I forgot how much I loved using MATE back in 2014 before deciding to try other desktops like #Xfce and #KDE (had already run it on #OpenSUSE on another computer at my house and on my #Windows7 laptop with the #Plasma on #Windows thing, but not on my desktop which at that point was brand new as I built it in October and it ran #LinuxMint).
#openSUSE Tumbleweed revisión de la semana 47 de 2023. Autor: Victorhck. https://victorhckinthefreeworld.com/2023/11/26/opensuse-tumbleweed-revision-de-la-semana-47-de-2023/
openSUSE Slowroll, which everyone is excited about. -- Still unconfirmed, still experimental, and still undecided.
Do not get your hopes up.
If you find a bug in openSUSE Slowroll, which others can confirm, and you supply a working fix, which others can confirm... Do not assume anything will be done with it. -- Just don't.
If you voice yourself, expect to get slapped down silly. -- That is how they respond to any and all constructive criticism.
How a development interacts with its base and how easy or hard they make it for people to join that ecosystem matters
My experience with Fedora and Universal Blue has been positive
I do think they could make it a little easier to submit fixes. But at least, my fix which I provided was applied. It didn't get ignored, and the bug is resolved. - Awesome!
But even when the issue was me and not the development, they still remain polite and respectful

Trying to help the openSUSE development was like trying to help an abusive partner. -- Just don't.
In comparison, here is Universal Blue a fork of Fedora SilverBlue. This is an instance where the issue is my own. I goofed (made a mistake).
The difference is I am not being talked down. I'm not being made to feel like I've wasted anyone's time. I didn't even reach out to them, they found me, and decided to help, knowing it was likely my issue.

I do not even like openSUSE's website anymore. Things are buried and hard to find. You need multiple log-ins to do anything.
Good luck submitting a bug report. For the newbie, good luck finding where to submit a bug report. If you know how to fix something, good luck with that too (really).
The leadership has become so toxic that I now block some of them here on Mastodon. Because anytime I've shared my views, they'd rather troll you

I started out on Mastodon dot social (same name) and if you look at my post history between both, I was a big supporter of openSUSE and SUSE.
For those who knew me on Reddit (also same name), I kept promoting and helping newbies regarding openSUSE for years.
I can no long claim to support, like, or respect the openSUSE development or SUSE. --It's a shame, because I did.
The leadership and how they conduct themselves has just gone off the rails. It truly has.

Everyone I know is getting this error.
Sometimes, openSUSE will hold a "election" but votingis not genuinely an option. This seems to be one of those times.
If you complain, they will say it is on your end, but without changing anything, the next election will work.
I suspect they have some crowd control sometimes. For the record, I have not voted, have switched between browsers, and devices, plus different network connections (ISP and VPN).
Anyone know if there has been anything from the #opensuse devs about the mirrors still being down?
Heute erkläre ich das Container Distro-Hopping 😅:
Flipped my laptop and desktop over to #Debian.
#OpenSUSE was cool, but surprise kernel regressions on my hardware isn't what I want on my desktop. OpenSUSE gives you the tools to rollback and managing it. But would much rather it never happens in the first place.
I've been flipping around rolling or quickly updating distros the past few months, mainly because I kinda want to play with #KDEPlasma 6 when it drops, but all I have done is just reminded myself that I don't like that style of linux.
KDE Neon gets kinda close with it's LTS base and it's rolling KDE user land on top. But I swear, Canonical doesn't know how to make a LTS release with some annoying bug under the hood that impacts me specifically.
NOTE: Not soliciting recommendations.
I just don't think rolling distros are worth the effort anymore. Even when they go through heroic effort to provide a lot of Q&A, like #OpenSuse.
I used to use OpenSuse for years but switched to Debian about 5 years ago for some forgotten reason.
I'm thinking about switching back for at least one computer - probably the desktop.
Preferred DE is KDE and I have an Nvidia GPU. Is there anything I should know before I make this move?
Damit bin ich sehr zufrieden!
Und 2021 holte ich mir ein gebrauchtes MacBookPro, weil ich es nutzen wollte, um elektronische Musik zu machen - was aber nicht so richtig anlief ...
Und Windows nutze ich nur noch, wenn ich muss (wie zB aktuell im Job).
Seitdem ich mitbekommen habe, wie stark individualisierbar Linux Distributionen sind, und welche Möglichkeiten sich daraus ergeben, ist Windows für mich wirklich nur ein "notwendiges Übel".
Und wer nur Windows geht: euch entgeht was ;)

@railmeat Depends, what do you intend to do on the system? Is there anything specific you want different from what you currently have? There is no best OS or best linux distro for every job, so its hard to give good recommendations without knowing the job. And even if you know the job a lot of solutions may be adequate and its purely preferential, lemme just throw a few into the room that you may want to try out and see how you like them: #Devuan, #Debian, #Artix (if you wanna deepen your knowledge), #Gentoo (if you wanna REALLY deepen your knowledge), #PikaOS (this one mainly just because a friend of mine is a maintainer, sorry not sorry), #Fedora, #openSUSE, maybe depending on what you wanna do, you may also wanna try other non-linux operating systems like #FreeBSD(or its derivates like #MidnightBSD), #OpenBSD, #DragonFlyBSD, #NetBSD or #OpenIndiana
The list goes on

Im Oktober gibt es neben 5 gruseligen CVEs auch neue Releases von #openSUSE Leap Micro 5.5, #Ubuntu 23.10, #Python, Uyuni und Foreman/Katello. GNU wird 40 Jahre alt und ein neuer #RaspberryPi5 erscheint.
Just how much is in the air when it comes to openSUSE?
Well, they're even looking to change their logos for all their many, yet undecided, projects.
8 designs in total.
I think the big news here is they're even looking for a new logo for the main title (brand) logo. That's a surprise.
If you're an artist and want to enter the contest, good luck.
