openSUSE Tumbleweed

Just wondering if anyone has used openSUSE Tumbleweed, and I'm interested in any comparisons between Tumbleweed and the regular 13.2 release.  I tried to install the Gnome version of it but it wouldn't load after installation, but I did have success with the KDE version.  I tried the regular 13.2 release, but since this release is Rolling, I like it slightly better.

    kleptos uses tumbleweed he is on irc often you can ask him questions

    Yesterday I went on a walk and saw a little chipmunk sitting on a log.   I went over and asked the chipmunk what he was doing there.  He looked up at me with his little eyes and now i only have one leg.

    tumbleweed is nice. I have not tried the latest version of Suse but you should give it a try.

    can even convert your original install into tumbleweed if you wish

    No problem morning_star.  I mainly wanted differences between the Tumbleweed version and openSUSE 13.2 aside from the Rolling vs Stable release comparisons.  I found Tumbleweed easier and quicker than openSUSE 13.2 to install.  Tumbleweed also has the Plasma KDE.  I think 13.2 is a little easier to find the stuff I want, and I think it updates quicker.  Those are just a few things that I noticed, or at least in my opinion.  I'm still using Q4OS though, I am more used to Synaptic over Yast.

    I'm not sure how to close a thread, but it doesn't matter anymore to me, because I deleted openSUSE Tumbleweed and went back to using Q4OS exclusively, at least for now.
