    It means 144Hz is early-birding the thread and trying to turn it into desktop holy wars. Do not feed...

      Mesa 19.2.6 , almost a year old, probably broken import from SLE, because SLE has "only" half year old 19.3. RC phase, nobody notices.
      Glibc 2.26, 3 years old, some games does not run on it. At least kernel 5.3 contains critical backports, like wireguard, so it is fairly modern.

      It looks like Leap want to be conservative. But don't be fooled. A week ago a big major version update of freetype was pushed directly to "stable" Leap 15.1. So some of us have ugly fonts in some applications now.

      So new Leap comes with outdated packages, while breaking changes are pushed into stable version. I was big openSUSE fan with version Leap 42.2 and 42.3 . But Leap 15 is disappointment.

        How come that isn't 5.4.something? Maybe I'm missing something, but wouldn't 5.4 or 4.14 be better choices over an EOL'd kernel?
        I'd like to think that too, but then again, even Ubuntu LTS ships with the latest and greatest Firefox rather than Firefox ESR. My point being that LTS, no matter what type of software, is hardly ever preferred by distro devs.

            Reading Phoronix articles and commenters on Leap is like reading someone writing about using a year-old frozen-in-time snapshot of Arch. What's the point? Tumbleweed has all the users and all the work going into it.

              mykolak Don’t get me wrong. It’s good to know they are past the point of no return.

                Probably means "GNOME and all of that" to him. He is just clever.

                  We know one thing - if opensuse were to move to dnf, then dnf would be made to finally actually work instead of moving at a snail's pace and giving inconsistent results.

                    While various people are insuring that dnf works on openSUSE (there was even a talk about dnf vs zypp at last years openSUSE conference which compared/contrasted both), I have seen no serious proposal that has been published to change the default (a few rumblings sure, but nothing serious), but instead just making sure the option is there. I suspect the only reason the openSUSE project would seriously consider such a change would be if the development resources allocated for zypp would need to be assigned elsewhere.

                      I was disappointed with Leap when I've noticed that first Leap had older perl than previous 13.x. So I've moved to Tumbleweed.
