    Hello @ GOD666 - I used openSUSE for about a year or so when I first got into using Linux, but about three years ago i jumped ship and began using Linux Mint. The reason? I really liked using the Cinnamon desktop over using the KDE desktop. After visiting their website I see that Cinnamon is now being offered as one of the choices, so it looks like I'll have to re-visit openSUSE.

    1. Gnome
    2. Xfce
    3. KDE
    4. Cinnamon
    5. Mate
    6. Budgie
    7. Enlightenment
    8. Unity
    9. LXQT
    10. LXDE

    All of those and a few more which I cannot recall at the moment, can all be installed at a click of a button. You can easily install one, then remove the other, or even keep more than one and just decide which you feel like using at login.

    Hello @ GOD666 - The last version I actually installed was openSUSE 13.2, and back then the installer only offered Gnome, KDE, LXDE, or Xfce to choose from. Looks like they've been very busy since then, and I'm glad to see such a range of choices.

    BTW, this afternoon I downloaded openSUSE Tumbleweed x86_64, and I'll be installing it later on tonight. I'm looking forward to see how it compares to using Linux Mint 18.2.

    In terms of stability and performance OpenSUSE and Manjaro were the best I've ever tested.

    Too bad that visually OpenSUSE has dropped a lot. The last version I used was 13.2 and it was great.

    At the moment I consider Manjaro the best option for those who like KDE.

    Hello @ GOD666 - Yesterday I downloaded the Tumbelweed .iso and verified the SHA256 checksum using 7Zip in Windows. Then I download and used ImageUSB (their recommendation for Windows) to create my installation media. Installation seemed to go well until I got somewhere near the end and was then thrown all the way back to the network setup screen. This happened several times, so it's either a bug in the installer or it didn't like my network settings, which it seemed to accept the first time around. It was getting late and I was getting tired of looking at it, so I'll give it a shot again tonight.

    Hmm, and here I always thought Unity was Ubuntu's(Canonical) proprietary desktop software.

    How funny the numbering is.
    Feels like Firefox, wonder when we get to 50 then 100, will there be 1000 some day?

    Much like Debian Linux, openSUSE's primary goal is stability. Which is why they're slower to release newer versions. However, unlike Debian, openSUSE uses RPM (not DEB) and does keep things a little more current. But you really should not be hung up on the version numbering. :p

    I do not care about numbers, but it is just mad to get to high numbers, one loses plot what is current (is 40+ current, or is that one already 50 etc)
