Xfce and openSUSE – Five Steps to Perfection

January 12th, 2015 by

Hi there, geekos!

You’ve probably read about openSUSE being touted as a “king of KDE distros”, with reviewers and journalists emphasizing the projects commitment to a unique KDE experience. There also seems to be a little more buzz concerning GNOME, since its 3.14 iteration – I, personally, haven’t read so many praises for the GNOME project since the Gnome 3 Shell introduction some threeish years ago. Also, the 13.2 version has seen the addition of MATE desktop. But, alongside the two big players and a somewhat nostalgic emerging project, we have the crowd’s favorite little big project – Xfce.

As the first major Linux distribution to have Btrfs as the default file system, what can users and developers expect from openSUSE 13.2?

How is the systems capabilities enhanced?

Btrfs has different performance characteristics; it’s a logging-style file system that provides fault tolerance, repair, and easy management features.

The most well known advantage of Btrfs is the rollback capability with the open-source tool Snapper.
