What’s unique about openSUSE?

by @ 11:41 pm. Filed under General SUSE, SUSE News

I stole this straight from Joe Brockmeier’s blog, but couldn’t pass up the opportunity. This is a really cool list.

He has a list of the things that are unique about openSUSE over other distributions. Here’s the list he provided:


Nice work, Joe! Head on over to his blog entry to read the whole posting.

    I question the use of the word unique. Most of the things you list here I can point at fedora, mandriva or ubuntu and say “look they have it it too” ( a package manager, some forums, AppArmor, a retail box ) which kinda nulls the whole uniqueness.

    That said, the mono and good hardware detection is why I use suse.

    I just read joes blog before I posted this – I see this is from “marketing”.

  2. Scott Morris Says:

    I do certainly see where you are coming from. Many have similar types of tools. I think the uniqueness comes in where they are not *exactly* the same tools and Joe (and myself) believes that they are different and may have some advantages over similar tools in other distros. So for what that’s worth… there it is. Thanks for coming by.

  3. Chris Says:

    openSUSE is the only linux distro that run vmware server properly – all the others will crash with OOM problems when you have a lot of VMs running on a large memory setup (eg: 4+ VMs on 8gigs ram).

    Sad, but true.
