Hello readers,Once again we are here with our second segment of  "Introduction with Linux World" series. Well this time we will be introducing another giant in Linux world

                        Last time we introduced Debian, one of the first giants. Now we gonna introduce SUSE. Yup we will see some good things about SUSE Linux or most commonly known as OpenSUSE. So here we begin. OpenSUSE is based on rpm package management. It is one of the most widely used Linux distro. OpenSUSE is also used as base of SUSE Enterprise Linux products. The operating system is sponsored by Novell which later acquired by Attachmate group. 
                         It is a very simple but highly customizable and efficient Linux distro. It is made for daily use plus servers and industry work too. While you can get OpenSUSE free of cost as it is completely opensource, but you can get lots of amazing features packed in it. An iso of  OpenSUSE contains loads of useful softwares packed in it plus it offers multiple DE while installing later too.

  1. Your comment "While you can get OpenSUSE free of cost as it is completely opensource..." is grossly inaccurate. You should amend accordingly and do read up what exactly is the definition of free/open source software.
