openSUSE Leap 42.2 Linux Now Officially Available for PowerPC64le Architectures

Yes, you’re reading that right, while many other popular GNU/Linux distributions are in discussions to deprecate support for the PowerPC (PPC) hardware architecture, including Debian Project and Canonical for their upcoming Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” and Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) releases, it looks like openSUSE still support it. If you haven’t read our openSUSE Leap 42.2 announcement story yet, we’d like to tell you that the operating system introduces numerous up-to-date components, among which we can mention the KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS desktop environment, a kernel from the long-term supported Linux 4.4 series, and many SUSE Enterprise Linux 12 SP2 goodies.
