openSUSE – A free and Linux-based operating system ▷ Download Now!

openSUSE is a free and Linux-based operating system for your PC, Laptop, or Server. You can surf the web, manage e-mails and photos, do office work, play videos or music, and have a lot of fun!

Like most distributions, it includes both a default graphical user interface (GUI) and a command line interface option. It allows the user (during installation) to select which GUI they are comfortable with (either KDE or GNOME).

openSUSE supports the 32-bit and 64-bit systems. The package comes with new features and updates. Moreover, it includes SpiderOak to sync your files across the Internet for free, and Rosegarden for free editing of your audio files.

Supports thousands of software packages across the full range of open-source development. It also has improved indexing with Tracker, and updates to Mozilla Firefox, and Thunderbird.


  • Open Build Service (OBS). Our build tool is building all of our packages and ones for SUSE Linux Enterprise, Arch, Debian, Fedora, Scientific Linux, RHEL, CentOS, Ubuntu, and more.
  • openQA. Automated testing for any operating system, that can read the screen and control the test host the same way a user does.
  • YaST. The best/only comprehensive Linux system configuration & installation tool.
  • Kiwi. Create Linux images for deployment on real hardware, virtualization, and now even container systems like Docker. Kiwi is the engine that builds the openSUSE release images.

The openSUSE project is a worldwide community program sponsored by Novell that promotes the use of Linux everywhere. It creates one of the world’s best Linux distributions, working together in an open, transparent, and friendly manner as part of the worldwide Free and Open Source Software community.

The project is controlled by its community. It relies on the contributions of individuals, working as testers, writers, translators, usability experts, artists, and ambassadors or developers. The project embraces a wide variety of technologies, people with different levels of expertise, speaking different languages, and having different cultural backgrounds.

The goals of the project are:

  • Make this OS the easiest Linux distribution for anyone to obtain and the most widely used open-source platform.
  • Provide an environment for open-source collaboration. That makes openSUSE the world’s best Linux distribution for new and experienced Linux users.
  • Dramatically simplify and open the development and packaging processes. That makes openSUSE the platform of choice for Linux hackers and application developers.

openSUSE shares many features with SUSE Linux Enterprise offerings:

  • AppArmor: gives certain applications rights based on how they run and interact with the environment.
  • YaST: a system management application that is used as a Control Center.
  • Xen: virtualization software
  • The KDE (extended with such tools as Kickoff and KNetworkManager) and GNOME desktop environments
  • Compiz: a 3D desktop that runs on XGL.

The world is mobile and openSUSE is too. Look no further for an operating system that lets you interact with all the current devices. Be it the increasingly popular Android, the chic iPhone, or the business workhorse BlackBerry. You can manage them all. Sync your music, access your photos, or use your phone to supply internet access. Simply be mobile!

Among these many new features, there is also provided support for netbooks and the Btrfs file system support. Users can expect to see improved hardware support with the Linux Kernel and updated graphics drivers. And support for the next generation of interactive computing for touchscreens like the HP TouchSmart.

Recommended System Requirements:

  • 2 GHz dual-core processor or higher
  • 2 GB system memory
  • Over 40GB of free hard drive space
  • Either a DVD drive or USB port for the installation of media
  • Internet access is useful and required for the Network Installer
