Based on SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) 15, the OpenSuSE Leap 15 operating system comes with all the enterprise features power users and IT professionals need, including the ability to migrate openSUSE Leap 15 installations to SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 when it's out later this year. This gives system integrators and administrators the long-term support, certifications, and mass deployments offerings of an enterprise OS. Major highlights of the openSUSE Leap 15 operating system include a new partitioner implemented in the installer, integration with the Kopano open-source groupware application suite, Firewalld as the default firewall management tool, a new classic "server" and "transactional server" system roles with read-only root filesystem and transactional updates, cloud optimizations, and a brand-new look that's been closely aligned with SUSE Linux Enterprise.
