openSUSE Edu Li-f-e 12.2 is a spin off ISO based on openSUSE mantis. Unlike the original ISO the Education Life ISO is a highly polished bit of distribution. As the name suggests it is tailored to cater to the needs of your everyday life. It also has a bunch of educational software bundled in it. After installing the Linuz you need not bother about installation of OSS and Non-OSS software etc. I have never tried out openSUSE Edu Li-f-e before but now that i have taken it for a spin it is amazing. openSUSE-Education Li-f-e 12.2 edition is too cool to miss. It openSUSE on steroids.
* It has KDE, GNOME and Cinnamon too.
* It has all the required multimedia codecs pre installed. It runs almost all the restricted formats(mp3s, mp4s, flvs..). No more multimedia related tweaks
* It has almost all the applications that you will need on a day to day basis.
