The makers' choice for sysadmins, developers and desktop users. New and experienced Linux users get the most usable Linux distribution and stabilized operating system with openSUSE's regular release. Receive updates and harden your OS with openSUSE's latest major distribution. Configure your system and enjoy the platform of choice for Linux developers, administrators and software vendors. The newest minor version of openSUSE Leap is the most recent, rock-solid addition to the openSUSE 15.x series that carries all the positive attributes of its predecessors. There is one huge change from the previous Leap versions. openSUSE Leap 15.3 is built not just from SUSE Linux Enterprise source code like in previous versions, but built with the exact same binary packages The software craftsmanship of this release makes server, workstation, desktop and container use on openSUSE Leap a desirable distribution for IT professionals, entrepreneurs, hobbyists, small businesses and educational practitioners. This release is hugely beneficial for migration projects and user acceptance testing. Large development teams gain added value by using openSUSE Leap 15.3 to optimally run and test workloads that can be lifted and shifted to SUSE Linux Enterprise Linux 15 SP3 for long-term maintenance. openSUSE Leap offers a clear advantage for servers by providing at least 18 months of updates for each release. The community is supportive and engages with people who use older versions of Leap through community channels like the mailing lists, Matrix, Discord, Telegram, Facebook, etc. This interwoven, connected and mutually supportive kinship between the community distribution of Leap and the enterprise distribution of the SLE version makes for an exciting release for developers, system administrators, distro-hoppers, independent software vendors, and SUSE users and customers. The mutual relationship shared by openSUSE Leap 15.3 and SLE 15 Service Pack 3 give users of both the same choices for thousands of community supported packages. These community packages are built in an openSUSE project called Backports on top of the baseline of SLE. Backports are published to SUSE Package Hub, so migrations from Leap to SLE are uniform and instantaneous. Migrations between the two is fast. openSUSE Leap 15.3 is a great choice for: - Windows users who can leverage a tightly integrated Linux environment for development or data science work - Network Administrators who can support Windows, Linux and hybrid networks with native command-line Linux networking tools - System Administrators who can manage hosts and data using native command-line Linux utilities such as rsync, tar, vim, grep, sed, awk, and many more. - Developers wanting to closely recreate Linux server environments without the overhead of a virtual machine - Users who would like to learn Linux without the additional complexity of setting up a dual-boot system or virtual machine
