It has been awhile since I last visited the Forum. Thought I would drop in and say Hello. I was wondering if anyone is still using SuSE. I used all of the commercial version until 10.1 I believe it was, when I gave it up for something else after a major crash. I downloaded the latest Leap 15 live KDE and it seems to run pretty good. I might give it a whirl just for something to play with. My main Distros are Mint Cinnamon and Debian with Cinnamon DE. I still play with Lubuntu and LXLE.

Well, my first openSUSE installation was 12.1, back in 2012, and then I kept with it up through Leap 42.2. Very nice distro, but I decided not to continue on with Leap 42.3 last summer, and now I mainly run Debian and Arch and a few based on those. And I've got a Kubuntu 18.04 installation -- very nice release, from what I've seen so far. I've been reading about Leap 15.0. Sounds good. I'm glad they brought back the live images; I'll probably download one of those and take it for a spin. I don't know if/when I'll install openSUSE again because I've found that I definitely have a preference for apt and pacman.

I started using SuSe back in the 90's with their first commercial release's. I paid $65 for each commercial version starting with 5.3 or 4 as I recall. It was my main OS until version 10.1 when I had a major crash that I could not recover from and lost a lot of important Info for my BBS. Have not used it since except to play with. I to prefer Debian and Mint as my main OS. Can't beat Apt.

I'm pretty sure ebrke, Elizabeth, uses SUSE on a daily basis.

Looks like great minds think alike Eric!

Yes, I'm still with openSUSE, have been since 2003. It runs well on my old hardware using xfce. Unfortunately, I'm still on 42.2, which is outdated, but I haven't had a chance to do the install of 42.3. I did download the program for the net install of 42.3 though. Good to hear from you Mel!

I Installed Suse Leap 15 on my hard drive. Was disappointed in it. I thought that maybe it would have improved by now. It is still slow and bloated. It looks real nice and has all of the eye candy, but is very very slow booting up and I have a fast computer with 16 GB of Ram and ssd disks. So off of the hard drive it comes. It also messed up my UEFI and I had to use rescatux to get into my main distro. I am going to replace it with SID Cinnamon.

Well, unfortunately, Suse has been that way for years. Even years ago yast was very slow.

Yes and after all of these years they still haven't changed. They are more Like "Gasp" Microsoft especially with their secure boot. I would change the boot to mint using Rescatux and the next boot it would bring up Suse. So I uninstalled it and redid the UEFI Boot.

It's unfortunate but at least you know how to"fix" it...

I have a couple of Leap 42.3 VMs running in my data centre for use as jump boxes. It seems to be the only Linux distro that I was able to run the virtual console of a Dell server with iDRAC 8 management. It requires Java and Ubuntu and Debian's implementation required too many hacks. Also, VNC seems to work better on it than other distros except Leap 15 has issues in VNC that I haven't been able to fix yet.

OpenSuse may be a bit slow, but it's always been dependable for me. Since I use older hardware anyway, I'm not expecting blazing speed.

I can understand that. My hardware is not the latest, but it will handle anything I care to run. I notice that Mint is starting to slow down and getting a little bloated. I also use LxLe which so far is fast. Don't know how it will be when the DE changes maybe to QT. I might give Lubuntu another look. But will stay with mint as primary for now.

I've been using Xfce on Suse for years, mainly because my hardware labors with KDE or Gnome. Xfce is fine for me anyway--I no longer need bells and whistles.
