OpenSUSE based distributions list

From DistroList
(Redirected from OpenSUSE)


SUSE was initially a german-based open-source software company, founded on 02/09/1992 in Nuremberg, Germany, by Roland Dyroff, Thomas Fehr, Burchard Steinbild, and Hubert Mantel.

  • The original idea was that the company would develop software and function as an advisory UNIX group.
    • According to Hubert Mantel, the group decided to distribute GNU/Linux, offering support.
  • SUSE was the first company to market Linux for enterprise.
  • SUSE was the developer of SUSE Linux, which later evolved into SUSE Linux Enterprise.
  • SUSE is also the lead sponsor of the community-supported openSUSE distribution project, created by Novell in 2003, following the company's acquisition.

SUSE History

SUSE History

SUSE's history has been marked by changes of ownership, and acquisitions of new companies.

  • The name of the company's creation was S.u.S.E. GmbH. (Gesellschaft für Software und System Entwicklung, Company for Software and System Development in english), however the full name has never been used.
  • The name "S.u.S.E." was shortened to "SuSE" in October 1998.
  • In 2003, in a move to reach its business audience more effectively, SuSE introduced the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server in 2001, and a few months before Novell's purchase, changed the company name to "SUSE" Linux. SUSE is now a name, not an acronym.

The company started as a service provider, regularly releasing software packages that included Softlanding Linux System (SLS, now defunct) and Slackware and printing UNIX and Linux manuals, and offering technical assistance.

These third-party products SUSE (S.u.S.E.) initially used had those characteristics and were managed by SUSE in different fashions:

  • In mid-1992, Peter MacDonald created the comprehensive Linux distribution known as SLS, which offered elements such as X and TCP/IP. This was distributed to people who wanted to get Linux via floppy disks.
  • In 1993, Patrick Volkerding cleaned up the SLS Linux distribution, releasing a newer version as Slackware.
  • In 1994, with help from Patrick Volkerding, Slackware scripts were translated into German, which was marked as the first release of S.u.S.E. Linux 1.0 distribution.
  • Novell bought the SUSE (S.u.S.E.) brands and trademarks in 2003.
The openSUSE Project
  • On 4 August 2005, Novell announced that the SUSE Professional series would become more open, with the launch of the openSUSE Project community.

The software always had been open source, but openSUSE opened the development process, allowing developers and users to test and develop it.

Previously, all development work had been accomplished in-house by SUSE. Version 10.0 was the first version that offered public beta testing.

  • SUSE Linux 10.0 included both open source and proprietary applications and retail boxed-set editions.
  • The support of the openSUSE project was on SuSE Linux 10.1, released on 11/05/2006.
The Attachment Group
  • On 27 April 2011, Novell (and SUSE) were acquired by The Attachmate Group, which made SUSE an independent business unit.
Micro Focus Interrnational
  • Later, in October 2014, the entire Attachmate Group, including SUSE, was acquired by the British firm Micro Focus International.
    • SUSE continues to operate as an independent business unit.
Blitz 18-679 GmbH (EQT Partners)
  • On 2 July 2018, it was announced that Micro Focus International, SUSE's parent company since 2014, announced its plan to sell the business unit to a subsidiary (SUSE) to Blitz 18-679 GmbH, a subsidiary of EQT Partners, for $2.535 billion, in the first quarter of calendar year 2019.
  • This acquisition was completed on March 18, 2019, making SUSE a standalone business.
  • Under new ownership, their legal name is SUSE Software Solutions Germany GmbH.
IPO (Initial Public Offering)
  • Early in 2021 sources indicated that SUSE was preparing for an IPO before summer with a projected value of 7-8 billion euros.
  • An official ITF (Intent to Float) statement was then released on April 26, 2021.
  • On May 19, 2021, SUSE went public at Frankfurt Stock Exchange at an original issue price of 30 euros, with EQT Partners retaining 75.7 percent.
  • The headquarters of the newly formed SUSE S.A. was set to Luxembourg.
  • Nürnberg remained the largest software development office though.
Delisting from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange
  • On 17 August 2023, EQT Private Equity announces intention to delist SUSE and merge into an unlisted Luxembourg entity.
  • On 13 November 2023, SUSE S.A. announced that the merger was completed.
  • The company previously known as SUSE S.A. was merged with Marcel New Lux IV S.A., a Luxembourg Public Limited Liability Corporation.
  • The new company changed its name to SUSE S.A. and the old company's shares were delisted from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

SUSE Linux

SUSE Linux was a GNU/Linux distribution developed by SUSE.


SUSE Linux includes a unique installation and administration program called Yast (YaST2) that allow to update, configure the network and firewall, manage users, and many more options all integrated into a single friendly interface. It also includes several desktops environments, including the most popular ones which are KDE and Gnome, the former being the default desktop.

The distribution incorporates the necessary tools to redistribute the hard disk space allowing the coexistence with other existing operating systems on it.

It uses RPM package manager (RPM package manager) systems originally developed by Red Hat although it is not related to this distribution.

It is also possible to use the CNR (Click 'N Run) installation system originally created by the company that distributed Windows OS (now called Linspire, and Freespire in its free version). This system synchronizes the machine to the CNR server and when clicking on the navigation page and any of the programs, it is automatically installed on the computer.

SUSE Linux - Short History

To build its own GNU/Linux distribution, S.u.S.E. used SLS in 1992 and jurix in 1996 as starting point.

  • jurix was created by Florian La Roche, who joined the S.u.S.E. team. He began to develop YaST, the installer and configuration tool that would become the central point of the distribution.
  1. The first no-official release was S.u.S.E. Linux 1.0 (4/94)'[1], released on 29/03/1994, based on Slackware 1.2.
  2. The first official released under the name S.u.S.E. Linux, released on 05/1996, was namered as S.u.S.E. Linux 4.2., based on Jurix.
  3. SuSE Linux 6.0, was released on 21/12/1998, as a Independent distribution.
  4. SuSE Linux 9.3, was released on 15/04/2005, was the last independent distribution created by SUSE.
  5. On 4 August 2005, Novell announced that the SUSE Professional series would become more open, with the launch of the openSUSE Project community. SUSE Linux 10.0, released on 06/10/2005, was made by openSUSE project, created by Novel.
  6. The last release created by openSUSE project for SUSE was SuSE Linux 10.1, released on 11/05/2006.

SUSE Linux Enterprise

SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) is a GNU/Linux distributions developed by SUSE, currently based on openSUSE and sharing the same technical features with it, although it was initially based on SUSE Linux.

It is available in two editions:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES),
for servers and mainframes.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED),
for workstations and desktop computers.

Its major versions are released at an interval of 3–4 years, while minor versions (called "Service Packs") are released about every 12 months.

SUSE Linux Enterprise products receive more intense testing than the upstream openSUSE community product, with the intention that only mature, stable versions of the included components will make it through to the released enterprise product.

It is developed from a common code base with other SUSE Linux Enterprise products.

From a business perspective, SLES is not only a technical offering, but also has entangled a commercial offering (services and support).

The initial business model was inspired by recurrent charges established in the mainframe world at this time, and innovated by Jürgen Geck and Malcom Yates.

Based on customer needs and feedback as well as other evolving Linux based offerings the business model has been reworked by different people in the subsequent years until today.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) is a GNU/Linux distribution from SUSE that is specially designed for enterprise customers.

  • The product comes with a corresponding support offering and a long-term maintenance phase. The hardware and software certifications required for business-critical use play an equally important role.
  • SLES and SLED are based on openSUSE Tumbleweed and shares a common codebase with openSUSE Leap.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED), introduced as Novell Linux Desktop (NLD), targeted at the business market, it is developed from a common codebase with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) and other SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) products.


Novell Linux Desktop 9 (NLD)

Was originally released on 09/11/2004, less than a year after Novell's acquisition of SUSE. There were a number of Service Packs (SP's) released for NLD 9:

  • SP1 was released on February 11, 2005 and contained many updates.
  • SP2 was released on August 9, 2005, containing all the released updates and bugfixes since August 2004.
  • SP3 was released on December 22, 2005. NLD 9 was based on SUSE Linux 9.1 and offered a more conservative offering of desktop applications for businesses. Its desktop included common end user applications like Mozilla Firefox, NLD also included software developed by Novell and its 2003 acquisition Ximian, such as the Red Carpet software management tool from Ximian and Novell's system management tool ZenWorks.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10
  • SLED 10 was released on 17/06/2006.
  • Novell increased the focus on features for a broader range of corporate users by focusing on meeting the needs for basic office workers, positioning SLED as a competitor to Microsoft Windows.
  • Basic office workers were defined in this context as users who need basic desktop functionality, including an office suite, a collaboration client, a web browser, and instant messaging.
  • Novell attempts to meet these needs by concentrating on making these components very compatible with existing enterprise infrastructure, such as Microsoft Office data files, Microsoft Active Directory, and Microsoft Exchange Server or Novell GroupWise collaboration systems.
  • It also included the Beagle desktop search tool, similar to Spotlight in Mac OS X v10.4. The Xgl+Compiz support enables a variety of advanced graphical effects in the user interface, such as "application tiling" (similar to Exposé). Other features include making it easier for Linux beginners to connect digital cameras to the computer and play audio files such as MP3s using Helix Banshee.

The version of GNOME included this release was highly customized, and debuted the slab application menu on a one panel layout.

  • The last service pack for SLED 10 was Service Pack 4, released 15/04/2011.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11
  • Based on openSUSE 11.1, was released 24/03/2009.

It included an upgrade to GNOME and was the first release to ship KDE 4, with version 4.1.3. Several improvements were made to improve Microsoft Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange Server integration, and the Novell version was upgraded to version 3.0. SLED continued to include some proprietary components such as Adobe Flash, as well as open-source implementations of closed sourced plugins and runtimes such as Moonlight and Mono.

Four service packs were released for SLED 11, with Service Pack 2 notably bringing BtrFS commercial support to the enterprise Linux market and including the snapper tool to manage BtrFS snapshots. The most current service pack, SP 4, was released July 17, 2015.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 12
  • On October 28, 2014, SUSE (now an independent business unit) released SLED 12 built on openSUSE 13.1. SLED 12 introduced several new technological upgrades, including systemd, GNOME 3, GRUB 2, plymouth, and the in-house built wicked wireless network manager. SLED 12 also included further stability and integration with BtrFS. With the transition to GNOME 3, the GNOME Classic Shell, the vanilla GNOME Shell, and a SLE Classic Shell with a design that more closely mimics the slab layout were included. KDE, the default desktop environment in openSUSE, and support for 32-bit x86 processors were dropped from the enterprise distribution.
  • SLE 12 Service Pack 1 was the first to be the basis for openSUSE's more conservative Leap series, with openSUSE Leap 42.1 sharing its codebase with SLE 12 SP 1. Leap 42.2 and 42.3 were built from the same codebase as SLE 12 SP 2 and SLE SP 3 respectively. SLED 12's underlying base, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12, was the first version of SLE to be offered on the Microsoft Store to be run on the Windows Subsystem for Linux.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 15
  • SLE skipped over versions 13 and 14, realigning the versions of openSUSE Leap and SLE at version 15. SLE 15 was released June 25, 2018 with the same codebase as openSUSE Leap 15.0. SLED 15 included major upgrades to GNOME 3.26, LibreOffice 6.0, GCC 7 and LTS kernel version 4.12. Version 15 also made the Wayland implementation of GNOME the default. SLES and SLED can now also be installed from the same media. SLED 15 offers the same GNOME Desktop options as SLED 12.
  • SLE 15 SP 1 shares a common codebase with openSUSE Leap 15.1. SLE 15 SP 1 includes improvements to the ability to migrate from openSUSE Leap to SLE, increased 64-bit Arm System on a Chip (SoC) supported processor options, transactional updates, and various other features.
  • SLE 15 SP 3 features a unified repository with same source code and binary packages with openSUSE Leap 15.3.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop Releases History
  • Versions 13 and 14 did not have server releases.
  • Platforms supported: IA-32 (except SLES 12 and 15), x86-64, ARM32, ARM64, s390x, IBM Power, IBM Z.

openSUSE Project

The openSUSE project is a worldwide effort, controlled by its community, that promotes the use of GNU/Linux everywhere. openSUSE creates one of the world's best GNU/Linux distributions, as well as a variety of tools working together as part of the worldwide Free and Open Source Software community.

The project relies on the contributions of individuals, working as testers, writers, translators, usability experts, artists and ambassadors or developers.

openSUSE Operating System

openSUSE is a RPM-based GNU/Linux distribution developed by the openSUSE project, easy to use and complete multi-purpose distribution, aimed towards users and developers working on the desktop or server, for beginners, experienced users.

The first release was a beta version of SUSE Linux 10.0, released on 06/10/2005, by openSUSE Project.

openSUSE Tumbleweed

[2] openSUSE Tumbleweed is a pure rolling release version of openSUSE containing the latest "stable" versions of all software instead of relying on rigid periodic release cycles. The project does this for users that want the newest stable software.

Tumbleweed is based on Factory, openSUSE's main development codebase.

Tumbleweed is updated once Factory's bleeding edge software has been integrated, stabilized and tested.

This idea has been discussed in mailing lists for a long time and was conceived into action by Greg Kroah-Hartman, originally as an 'add-on' set of rolling updates which could be layered on top of a regular openSUSE release.

  • On 04/11/2014 the Tumbleweed rolling release and Factory rolling release merged, leaving the single openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling release.

OpenSUSE Tumbleweed variation is an upstream distribution for both the Leap variation and SUSE Linux Enterprise distribution, its branded Leap variation is part of a direct upgrade path to the enterprise version, which effectively makes openSUSE Leap a non-commercial version of its enterprise product.

openSUSE Leap

[3] openSUSE Leap is based on sources and binaries from SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE), which gives Leap a level of stability unmatched by other GNU/Linux distributions, and combines that with community developments to give users, developers and sysadmins the best stable GNU/Linux experience available.

Contributor and enterprise efforts for Leap bridge a gap between matured packages and newer packages found in openSUSE’s other distribution Tumbleweed.

  • The first version of openSUSE Leap 42.1 was released on 04/11/2015.

Leap will have minor releases and users are expected to upgrade to the latest minor release within 6 months of its availability, leading to a life cycle of 18 months of maintenance and security updates per minor release.
