openSUSE Tumbleweed Now Powered by Linux Kernel 4.9.9 & Mesa 13.0.4, Update Now

First of all, it would appear that openSUSE Tumbleweed is now keeping up with the latest Linux kernel releases. Following a rolling release model, the operating system migrates to the latest Linux kernel branches as soon as they’re out, and it’s powered by Linux 4.9 for a long time now. However, as the Linux 4.9 point releases are coming out so fast, it’s pretty hard for OS vendors to keep up with them, but it looks like the openSUSE Tumbleweed team has more under its sleeves, as they managed to update the distro to both Linux 4.9.8 and 4.9.9 kernel releases last week.
