    Phoronix: Fedora Workstation 31 Should Be Another Fantastic Release For Desktop Linux

    Fedora Workstation 31 when it debuts at the end of October should be another great release for the Fedora project and continuing to ship with the bleeding-edge yet stable packages and latest upstream innovations...

    And that’s how you develop and pitch the Workstation!

      Is this fantastic release going to continue to bring up the rear in benchmark testing I wonder?

        Sigh... I remember when OpenSUSE used to provide this before the last SUSE owners got a hold of it and made Richard Brown the OpenSUSE chairman. :-( Then it became all about stability, using the antique SUSE Linux Enterprise kernel, containers, etc. It went from an 8-month release cycle to a yearly release cycle, while major changes were reserved for once every three years (!!!!!!).
        It went from competing with Fedora to competing with Debian Stable, with a concomitant slide in popularity on DistroWatch. Hopefully a new SUSE owner, a new chairperson and talk about setting up an independent foundation will bring OpenSUSE back and give Fedora some friendly competition again.

        Hmm... someone needs to make green caps with a "Make OpenSUSE Great Again" logo.

          alcalde Agree. OBS and some automated QA might be cheap but is not enough.

            Doesn't Tumbleweed provide "the latest shit"? (Been a while since I looked into SUSE.)

              openSUSE provides a Leap fix release distribution and a Tumleweed rolling release distribution, both of which are fantastic. What do you want more?

                Imho Fedora Workstation is massively underrated as a distro. Fedora/RH devs from my PoV do a lot of work on the Linux desktop that other distros get the praise for.

                But the good thing about all this work is that it benefits all distros.

                  From my experience going back quite a few years, Leap has been kind of a side project, and Tumbleweed was the primary opensuse distro which got the majority of the work. I don't think anything you've said here applies at all to Tumbleweed, other than the slide in Distrowatch popularity.

                    Running F31 beta currently on a Macbook Pro 2014 and playing WoW Classic through Fedora's Wine Staging 4.16 package; all is well!
