    I've been using Tumbleweed for 5 years, but I've also used Leap for a few years... my opinion is that today it doesn't make much sense to use a fix release distribution for desktop use, however there may be cases where it is the best solution.
    The "new" update model of this new distribution is certainly a good compromise, because Leap and the various fix release distributions are not more "stable" than Tumbleweed, it is just more predictable.​

      For a desktop system, I’d rather go with a recent kernel and mesa instead. IMHO the primary reason, why Leap has been unpopular.
      Look at how widely spread Ubuntu LTS has become amongst gamers. With a good kernel and kisak’s mesa repo, these platforms perform extremely well.
