your download can be important as it verifies you really have got the
ISO file you wanted to download and not some broken version.
desktops_p1 The openSUSE contribution process empowers desktop development for
everybody, so you have the choice to pick your favourite one in the
installer. We actively feature three desktop environments, and offer
even more in the expanded software view within the installer.
installation_p1 The openSUSE Installation process provides you with all the options
you would possibly need. Want to install your system with mouse and
keyboard? Load up the installer in graphical mode. Don't have a mouse
on hand? Enable the terminal client and install it that way. Don't have
physical access to the machine? Connect to the installer remotely and
get on with the installation. It's that simple.
points_transparent_p1 From start to finish, every package which goes into the distributions
has all of its sources and build scripts openly visible for everyone
to see. Doubtful of a source? Just check it out on the build service.

repositories. Don't want to use non-free packages? You can easily
disable the non-free repository. It's your choice, not ours.

software and updates. Just boot from an earlier snapshot and bring

software_p1 Between us, having to go through every website to get all the
software you might need is a lot of work. The online software center
makes this way easier, by incorporating software from a plethora of
sources in one place.
transactional_p1 The installer now supports a new system role Transactional Server,
which is an outcome of the openSUSE Kubic efforts. This system role
features a new update system that applies updates atomically (as a
single operation) and makes them easy to revert should it become
necessary. These features are based on the package management tools
that all other SUSE and openSUSE distributions rely on. This means
that the vast majority of RPM packages that work with other system
roles of openSUSE distributions also work with the system role
Transactional Server.
yast_p1 One of the greatest system configuration tools helps you, the user, to
setup every single aspect of your system. You no longer need to go
through a plethora of configuration scripts or enter dubious commands
to get the system setup as you need it.

layer for usage with apt and apt-get commands. It's based on libsolv,

ease of reading. It's perfect, what else could be said?
