Our community creates, promotes, improves and documents open-source software.

The openSUSE project is a worldwide effort that promotes the use of Linux everywhere. openSUSE creates one of the world's best Linux distributions, as well as a variety of tools, such as OBS, OpenQA, Kiwi, YaST, OSEM, Uyuni, all working together in an open, transparent and friendly manner as part of the worldwide Free and Open Source Software community. Distributions include a rolling release (Tumbleweed), a stable annual release (Leap) and operating systems for embedded, cloud and containers through MicroOS and Kubic.

The project is controlled by its community and relies on the contributions of individuals, working as testers, writers, translators, usability experts, artists and ambassadors or developers. The project embraces a wide variety of technology, people with different levels of expertise, speaking different languages and having different cultural backgrounds.
