    Phoronix: OpenSUSE Leap + SUSE Linux Enterprise Planning To Move Closer In 2020

    SUSE and the openSUSE community are working to move SUSE Linux Enterprise and openSUSE Leap closer together...

    Hopefully this would move openSUSE closer to SLED and their enterprise desktop.

      You mean hopefully this will move SLED closer to Leap....

      How anybody could think that locking userspace deps to old versions is somehow more secure is just stupid. Especially so on Linux where almost nothing implements stable user facing interfaces and so locking in userspace dependencies is guaranteed to break things. Super dumb. Always was.

        They aren't just locking to old versions, they are backporting all security fixes to their old versions, and also patching userspace applications if needed. Choosing LTS versions of the applications (if available) is also done (LEap is using LTS Qt/KDE, LTS firefox and thunderbird, among others) to reduce the load.

        But of course you only know Windows so for you it's dumb here too. On Windows it is indeed dumb because you can't backport stuff in your distro's libraries.

          I hope this means moving Enterprise closer to Leap rather than the other way around :P

            Yes, they talk of being able to run SLES binaries in Leap directly

              Another fanatical believer that "only the latest new stuff can possibly be secure or productive". Despite decades of experience showing that stable, long term support packages are easier to secure and often run better/faster.

              I use Tumbleweed and Arch fairly often, but not because their bleeding edge packages make them more secure or perform faster. I use them because they have packages with new features I'd like to use without waiting 6-9 months like Fedora and Ubuntu users or 2-3 years like Debian users, and without having to forage through unstable, rarely tested, hobbyist PPAs to try recent software. That's where insecurity lies.

                  Can you stay on-topic and not start yet another flamewar?
