This is a pre-loaded 16GB SDcard with OpenSUSE Tumbleweed Linux Enterprise OS for Raspberry Pi 3. OpenSUSE is a Linux based project, an easy to use and complete multi-purpose distribution, creating usable open-source tools for software developers and system administrators, while providing a user-friendly desktop, and feature-rich server environment.
This installation is OpenSUSE Tumbleweed E20 for the Raspberry Pi 3, which is continuously updated with tested, stable packages. Users can also use the Open Build Service. Moreover, the flexibility of openSUSE makes it easy to re-purpose for specific goals like running a web or mail server.
Like most Linux distributions, openSUSE includes both a default graphical user interface (GUI) and a command line interface option. OpenSUSE supports thousands of software packages across the full range of free software and open source development.
OpenSUSE is aimed towards users and developers working on the desktop or server. It is great for beginners, experienced users and ultra geeks alike, in short, it is perfect for everybody!
OpenSUSE Tumbleweed Features
The Tumbleweed distribution is a pure rolling release version of openSUSE containing the latest stable versions of all software instead of relying on rigid periodic release cycles. The project does this for users that want the newest stable software.
Tumbleweed is based on Factory, openSUSE's main development codebase. Tumbleweed is updated once Factory's bleeding edge software has been integrated, stabilized and tested. Tumbleweed contains the latest stable applications and is ready and reliable for daily use.
This idea has been discussed in mailing lists for a long time and was conceived into action by Greg Kroah-Hartman, originally as an 'add-on' set of rolling updates which could be layered on top of a regular openSUSE release. On November 4th 2014 the Tumbleweed rolling release and Factory rolling release merged, leaving the single openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling release we have today.
