openSUSE

An open source Linux operating system distribution developed and supported by the openSUSE Project. openSUSE is freely available for download, and the most recent "stable" release of openSUSE, openSUSE 12.2, debuted in September 2012 with new features like KDE 4.8, GNOME 3.4, GRUB 2 and XFCE 4.10.

The openSUSE Project is sponsored by SUSE, which had been owned by Novell since 2003, but SUSE currently operates as a standalone business unit following The Attachmate Group's acquisition of Novell in 2011. openSUSE branches also serve as the basis for SUSE Linux Enterprise releases.
