"I have used SUSE on my servers for decades."

What do you like best?

Yast is a decent UI for server management. The SUSE and linux documentation is served pretty well. It is a very stable system. Not much down time. Installation and upgrades usually work pretty well with not too much for problems. Mostly, I am a great linux fan and SUSE is a decent distro.

What do you dislike?

Yast could manage a multitude of things that it does not. Some applications have obscure bugs that take a while to find and fix and/or work around. Most of the problems I've encountered are difficulties with linux not SUSE based.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Look around at the different distros and pick one to suit your needs. SUSE works well for me.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary packages we use are survey tabulation, statistical analysis, and the LAMP stack. These allow us to conduct large market and employee research studies. SUSE helps me to keep this software and my servers running well.

"Reliable and Secure Linux Distro"

What do you like best?

SUSE is a great reliable and secure linux distribution. It is suitable for both small and large enterprises. It has become very mature over the years. It was not a supported Linux Distro for Oracle Database years back but even Oracle supports it officially now :)

I also love the interface. It is easy easy to configure. I am a special fan of "Orarun" and "YaST" tools that comes with SUSE. Orarun makes oracle database and oracle application deployment easy. YaST makes OS setup and configuration easy. Auto YaST enables you to perform unattended installations on thousands of systems automatically.

What do you dislike?

If you want to run Windows Applications on SUSE, be ready to struggle around it. You will require utility software to get you through that.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We leveraged SUSE to support virtual infrastructure for one of our projects. We have been doing great with our choice so far.

"Enterprise quality Linux distro that you can depend on."

What do you like best?

The support is top notch with custom vetted secured packages.

What do you dislike?

Since it's corp oriented distro you are not going to get the latest kernels or packages. It's probably better to stick with ubuntu or debian

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If it's too much risk to try it right away, openSuse is out there for ones to test-drive this product before deploying to production.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

System admin and light servers for http server and print servers. And hosting containers.
