    Oh and about his hype on the "SUSE Linux Enterprise - openSUSE merger":

    He is just too happy about it because SUSE Linux Enterprise uses the GNOME desktop by default (and is the only supported one), and if it were to happen, this could be in turn the death of KDE on openSUSE... and that would be a horrible thing for us...

      Welcome to Phoronix.
      Unfortunately, this is not limited to Phoronix: he is also on Reddit, where he acts in the exact same way, posting a never-ending stream of one-liners praising anything related to Gnome (GTK, Ubuntu since it switched to Gnome, the Purism company, Wayland) and attacking anything else (notoriously Qt, KDE and non-Gnome Ubuntu). He's been banned at least once from there too, so he changed account. It isn't a funny troll, the guy is obsessed, he spends his time following commit logs and watching new forum posts to be the first to post a meaningless comment, he's sick. As years have proven that it is not possible to get rid of him, it is best just to ignore him.

          Welcome to Phoronix.
          Thanks for both explanation and welcome!
          I thought Gnome vs KDE is old and dead pointless flamewar.

          I don't think this would ever happen. openSUSE has a quite big KDE community. And let be honest, death of KDE on openSUSE would mean a death of openSUSE for a lot of people, like me.

            You'd be surprised . A lot of people are very adamant about how their way is the right way and that any other way is inferior and are quick to go tell it on the mountain, over the hills, and everywhere.

            Me neither. It would also be a decent hit to the KDE community since there just aren't near as many KDE-first distributions as there are GNOME-first. openSUSE is one of "the" KDE distributions to use.

              I will be back to work in a couple of months, I have updated Leap to 15.2 on all my PCs in my company. Everything works perfectly, for me Leap is synonymous with great stability and I am not very interested in all the talk about the version of the kernel and the libraries.
              I switched my PCs from Ubuntu to Leap 3 years ago, when I often had problems with Ubuntu. So all I care about is a reliable system. At home I use Tumblewwed and I enjoy it, but in the company I can't ...

                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.
                This is only a service pack, it is not a new version of Leap. Only "light" updates are made, although in this case the updates are significant, the base remains unchanged, to ensure stability and continuity.
                This is what all very stable fix release distributions do, such as Debian etc.

                  openSUSE and SUSE are and will remain two distinct things. SUSE needs to have a basic DE and officially support it and since it is very expensive to do so they have joined other distributions that use Gnome. Among other things, a horrible version of Gnome is officially supported, reminiscent of Gnome 2, but on the other hand for enterprise use a DE is rarely used, if not for having a fixed window.
                  In any case Plasma is also available in SUSE.
                  As I said ... SUSE and openSUSE will remain two separate things, what will change is that Leap and SLE will also share the binaries, thus having full compatibility.
                  In my opinion many people here have never used an enterprise distribution, perhaps they would be disappointed if used in a home environment, many things that we use every day are not supported ...
                  EDIT.
                  Ops, mi sono reso conto di avere fatto doppi post, me ne scuso

                    Debian has different release model, than SUSE. If you want know more about SLE releases, read: https://suse.com/c/how-suse-builds-i...bution-part-4/

                      Hi, I use openSUSE, not SUSE and my comparison was between openSUSE and Debian, not between SUSE and Debian, but you're right there are two different methods, but both point to stability as a priority.
                      This is a service pack not a new version of Leap, so it is quite normal for many packages to be old.
