Long-term support for free SUSE Linux discussed

Filed under

The reduction of the support duration for openSUSE from 24 to 18 months has sparked a discussion among the openSUSE community about a free SUSE Linux version with long-term support.

Several community members are of the opinion that reducing the openSUSE support has created a gap between the free openSUSE and the commercially supported SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES). They suggest this could be filled by a free and non-commercial version of SUSE, intended for server use, that is supported with updates and security patches for several years.
