    Home user: Leap for stability and Tumbleweed for cutting edge. Enterprise user: there's a SLES flavor for everything. And for ultimate customization: SUSE Studio.

    Another thing: openSUSE Build Service does not get the proper praise it deserves. That is one awesome piece of software.
    Yeap. Just a few days ago I ran into an issue with DOSBox, that was reportedly fixed in the development version of it (there hasn't been an actual release for years...). I searched for such a package but couldn't find it. So I cloned the official package, dropped in the new source tarball and changed the version number, and boom, there's now a repository with the development version of DOSBox.

    I really hope, LEAP 42.2 will support the new AMDGPU(PRO) stuff. At launch time there should be the new Polaris GPUs.

    Don't be an idiot. Don't be like me. Test what openSUSE Leap 42.2 Alpha 1 can ACTUALLY do before making statements in either direction about what it does or doesn't need. Leap 42.2 Alpha 1 might already have options for amdgpu users..who knows? not me, obviously but the Alpha is out so you can find out
    If they have USB 3.1 Gen 2 support, than they will surely have amdgpu also. Let's wait for official announcement.
    I just checked release notes (http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...E-NOTES.en.txt), it is incomplete.

    Don't be hasty about making such assumptions.

    We've already had an amusing mailinglist thread on the openSUSE list where a user requested we use Kernel 4.6 in order to support USB 3.1 Gen 2.

    I responded passionately with a deep, detailed, in depth, from the heart defence of why I think Kernel 4.4 is the best choice, how Leap is not openSUSE's answer for "we want the latest support of everything" (that's Tumbleweed), and how the kind of stability that Leap users want is best served by Kernel 4.4.

    A flag was planted, a line in the sand was drawn, my stance as a member of the openSUSE community was unambigiously clear and I was certain it would help persuade others that, while it comes at some cost, Kernel 4.4 LTS was the best choice for Leap.

    And then one of the SLE Kernel developers posted on the thread "Oh, USB 3.1 Gen 2 support from Kernel 4.6? Yeah we backported that into the SLE 4.4 Kernel already, its in Leaps Alpha 1's kernel"

    *head desk*

    And in one fell swoop it was proven why having Leap so close to SLE is downright awesome, with SLE engineers fixing the communities problems before they even complained about it.

    But boy does it make me look stupid
