    It's strange how 10 years ago I was a kde fan who couldn't stand gnome, while nowadays it's the reverse.

    I kinda like the default settings of gnome, great taste, lots of screen real estate for...

    If a driver is that trivial and independent of the OS, chances are backporting it from 3.16 to newer kernels will be trivial aswell.

    And Linux is better for old hardware, who says you have to use...

    So far i have to say i like it very much.

    After adding the packman factory repo and the games:tools repo and installing steam(which pulled in everything necessary to run steam games on linux...

    I switched from manjaro to it, tried a fresh install with a factory iso first but that didn't work out, installer in the live iso crashed on startup for me, so i installed a 13.1 live cd, stripped it...

    Tumbleweed was never meant to be a rolling release, it is BASED on the last stable release(which is why you have to change your repos from 13.1 syntax to the symling "current", so a major release...

    Fair enough, though i still get nervous tick in my eyelid when i hear you comparing Arch and Tumbleweed like that ;). Though i do agree that the superficial outcome is very similar to an enduser in...

    To your former post, that's the same as putting stable instead of wheezy in Debian sources.list, and I think we both agree Debian stable isn't a Rolling release.

    And yes, if you added the missing...

    The opensuse:stable stuff are symlinks to the most recent repos, i.e. 13.1. The real update to your system happens when that changes from 13.1 to 13.2. Its like having stable instead of wheezy on a...

    Correction, Tumbleweed actually contains kde and gnome. Don't want to slight it, but it still lacks many base packages needed to make it a full distro. That's simply not it's scope.

    Sorry but did you really understand what we are talking about? Tumbleweed isn't even a distro, it's a update repository to Suse. The problem isn't even that it doesn't offer new versions of Mesa,...

    Opensource drivers with mesa 9.x? Have fun with that. You would be more recent just adding the xorg repo to your normal 13.1 install, which doesn't support tumbleweed.

    Tumbleweed isn't a true...

    At the end of the day he is right though. He wants to advance his project, its not his fault there is no competition for his project eliminating choice for the enduser.

    I have to admit i like the design, it has the simplistic feel of gnome 3 without leaving all desktop design paradigments of the last 20 years behind.

    Though i fully intent to test it in a virtual...
