### Transactional Updates
By using btrfs with snapshots MicroOS uses a very space
efficient way to store the file system's history. All the configuration
files in `/etc` are part of the snapshot and the rollback.
* No new package format is needed, use standard openSUSE RPMs
* No size limitation, neither for partitions nor the operating system
* Easy to enhance
The Offline Image is typically recommended as it contains most of the
packages available in the distribution and does not require a network
connection during the installation.
The Network Image is recommended for users who have limited
bandwidth on their internet connections, as it will only download the
packages they choose to install, which is likely to be significantly
less than 4.7GB.
Due to $change_in_policy in Google Chrome and Chromium, downloading images by clicking the
download buttons is currently broken. To circumvent this issue, right click the download
button and click "Save link as..." to save the image. The reason for this bug is tracked in
$bug on GitHub, please let the maintainers know this affects you.

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.
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.
If you’re already running openSUSE you can upgrade by booting from the
DVD/USB and choosing upgrade, or carry out an ‘Online Upgrade’ in a few
Downloads the installation system and all packages from online
repositories. Suitable for installation or upgrade.
Contains a large collection of software for desktop or server use.
Suitable for installation or upgrade.
Packages in the distributions are divided into free and non-free
repositories. Don't want to use non-free packages? You can easily
disable the non-free repository. It's your choice, not ours.
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.
We try our best to please the community, and we can only make this
happen when the community is vocal about what they need. That's why we
ensure contributing is as easy as possible.
