  • Choosing between openSUSE vs Fedora | 2021-09-12
    Tumbleweed and Leap works out of box with BTRFS and the first install experience can be bloated and slow, but Debian Stable also is not a minimal install if you choose Gnome or KDE. SUSE needs less work after install compared to Debian. If something breaks or not working you have more support for Debian, but openSUSE and Fedora are both have good community, and also you have the tools to prevent such problems more proactively with SUSE with openQA. I have to mention the openSUSE YaST installer is the most advanced graphical installer what I personally know in the Linux space. After Debian It's easy to learn, and somewhat intuitive if you have Linux experience, but I see why some of the users hate it. It's a pro software with endless options, can be overwhelming if you see for the first time. But the out of box options are great.
  • Thinking of leaving Kubuntu for openSUSE... Why should I do it? | 2021-08-31
    First openQA will check if there are any issues with the new kernel and the current packages, if not the update will become available as soon as possible.
  • OpenQA testing arrives to GNOME | 2021-08-18
    OpenSuSE are testing their entire distro this way - check out
  • Why Valve Is Switching from Debian to Arch for Steam Deck's Linux OS | 2021-08-09
    OpenSUSE does a fair amount of automated testing before publishing a new snapshot. here, and the OpenSUSE specific instance here

  • Question on Tumbleweed updates, and checking before updating | 2021-07-15
    If it's unsafe, we won't release it. But you can check the results in Any new/unexplained failure there already blocks the release though, like I said.. | 2021-07-15
    I usually check:
  • Is there an openSUSE equivalent of Debian's unattended-upgrades (automatic update of entire distribution + reboot if necessary)? | 2021-07-14
    The latter, but with even more checks. If a core package fails to build, and the watchful release manager won't even send the new "rolling release" to the mirrors. openQA really is pretty cool, you should check it out, you will realise why Tumbleweed breaks only when us devs really mess up.
  • Tumbleweed: In 2 days 3 version update released :) | 2021-04-26
    Major kernel version updated take usually 1-2 weeks from upstream release. The tests are the usual install+use tests on
  • Gnome 40 now available in Tumbleweed | 2021-04-15 is a good place to start.
  • Keeping old linux games running?
    As for 1.5, 1.4 and 1.0 thy seem to miss but since the source of them is still on sourceforge it would not be very difficult to bring them to OBS. (openSUSEs "AUR" if you want to call it like this but also the official repos are hosted there an packages are build in their cloud and not on the local machine plus support for automated testing thanks to OpenQA)
  • A brush with Java.
    We have plenty stuff running with backends in perl, python and ruby/rails. It might be slower at runtime, but faster to develop.
  • Where can I find up-to-date communities? | 2021-03-02
    openQA is here and the open build service is here
  • openQA (openSUSE) - public APIs? | 2021-02-26
    The API calls seem to be defined in
