  • Just try it, it's glorious
    The amazing tooling: - YaST, the best configuration tool out there. I think its fair to say that nothing comes close to the number of things you can configure with Yast. - Open Build Service (OBS), a tool that automatically builds binaries for software and sets up repositories to add to your favorite package manager. Supports every major linux distro but intergrates especially well with the openSUSE software... Source: about 2 years ago

  • The Future of Snapcraft | Ubuntu
    OpenBuildService is better in every way, is fully opensource everywhere and can even generate packages for ubuntu better than launchpad appears to, and can even build entire distros. No special integrations are necessary, it can cost-effectively work with a highly paralellized number of virtual machines (iinm 100 or more on generic threadripper or epyc). Source: over 2 years ago

    Good idea, give it a try. I'd recommend Kubuntu or Mint with Cinnamon. I switched to KDE for KDE Connects' amazing smartphone (Android) integration, which I recommend srrongly to try. Switched to openSUSE Tumbleweed myself, best KDE implemention IMHO, rolling release and the software selection is great, whats missing from the repos can be installed via opi, a client for [0]. It is not that newbie friendly though,... - Source: Hacker News / almost 3 years ago
  • I switched from macOS to Linux after 15 years of Apple
    Try it on openSUSE, the best KDE integration by far IMHO, since it is their standard DE since IDK/forever? Tumbleweed offers the newest packages, rolling like Arch, but with a huge test battery on OBS ( Snapshots on upgrade make the thought of breakage (haven't had any) tolerable.

  • Hi (and an introduction to the Raku CI bot)
    There currently exists no CI offering that provides support for all of these. Especially the rarer hardware platforms are difficult to find support for. There is one rather strange exception though.
