openSUSE Linux - The makers' choice for sysadmins, developers and desktop users

Our Project

The openSUSE project is a worldwide effort that promotes the use of Linux everywhere. openSUSE creates the world's best Linux distributions and tools, working together in an open, transparent and friendly manner as part of the worldwide Free and Open Source Software community.

Leap Distribution

New and experienced users alike get the most usable and stabilized Linux operating system with openSUSE’s regular release Leap. Leap provides a great balance between up to date and stable, hardened Free Software for your computer. Pick your desktop, configure your system and enjoy the platform of choice for Linux users, administrators and software vendors!

Tumbleweed Rolling Distribution

If you always want to have the newest Free Software you want the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling distribution! It appeals to power users and software developers that require the latest software stacks and development environments on a stable, close to bleeding edge Linux platform. If you're living on the Free Software edge, Tumbleweed is the best choice for you!


To be able to produce two world class distributions, openSUSE develops a lot of system level tools like YaST our installation and configuration tool, Portus our user interface for the next gen docker registry or Machinery an application for configuration discovery, system validation and service migration. And because we believe that communication is the most important factor in Free Software we also develop a self-hosted open source solution for videoconferencing (Jangouts) and an event management app tailored for free software conferences (Open Source Event Manager).
