OpenSUSE Linux Best for SOHO, SMB

What do you like best?

Leap 42.2 is my VPS Linux OS of choice (as well local LAN-connected machines). Summary: Manageability via YAST. You can run a solid system and not be FT professional sysadmin!

OpenSUSE instances are used for personal productivity (and in a mixed Windows 10 / Linux environment that is local and remote) and some small business projects. I'm not directly an IT professional, so minimizing the number of hours I have to manage my systems is critical. Over several years I've grown to really appreciate OpenSUSE. Having started with Ubuntu I migrated to OpenSUSE on the recommendation of a friend and have never looked back. It's easy to manage and it's rock solid. I now have good recipes for remote access over SSH supporting both X11 and VNC. (And my OpenSUSE desktop is the memory-saving Xfce.) The OpenSUSE deployment is now a real productivity tool for me. YAST is key to easy management. In fact I found that OpenSUSE has had fewer problems than I experienced with Ubuntu. OpenSUSE has market momentum and enough attention of user experience that it's a terrific choice for the savvy non-IT specialist. Note that "savvy non-IT specialist" means you are now responsible for security and backup and access -- but these are non-trivial challenges for any computer system!

What do you dislike?

A few years and versions ago the "systems info and splash page" applet was deprecated. It was a handy summary of sys info including storage, RAM, versioning, system parameters etc. All this info is easy enough to find, but not quite as convenient. Would be nice to bring back the applet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Everyone knows Ubuntu, and Ubuntu is good certainly. But OpenSUSE has been easier and more rock-solid business-oriented, in our experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not locked in to Microsoft ecosystem while enabling flexible information platform.

What do you like best?

The standard distribution contains the main things I need and it's easy to add other packages. It's easy to do a basic installation, but also allows for more custom setups. It's well supported and generally reliable.

What do you dislike?

There can occasionally be functionality issues, which isn't surprising given it's open source.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use openSUSE for my research work. With the existing and add-on packages I can work efficiently.
