OpenSUSE Information

SUSE Linux is a computer operating system. It is built on top of the open source Linux kernel and is distributed with system and application software from other open source projects. SUSE Linux is of German origin and mainly developed in Europe. The name “S.u.S.E” was originally a German acronym for “Software und System-Entwicklung”, meaning “Software and systems development”. However, the full name has never been used and the company has always been known as “S.u.S.E”, shortened to “SuSE” in October 1998 and more recently “SUSE”.

Starting with Leap 42.1 (after version 13.2), openSUSE will be built for 64-bit architectures only, and hence will not run on older hardware without 64-bit support.
