15 Why?
16
17 They all are doing stuff to Linux to support what they need from Linux. And they do so in a way that helps everyone else out as well.
18
19 Linux is evolution, not intellegent design - Linus
20
21 Because of this, Linux works better than any other operating system ever has, for more different types of devices and processors.
22
23
24 "Linux is the only OS that will run on architectures that haven't been invented yet" - - Dr. Irving Wladawsky-Berger IBM
25
26 "Linux took over Wall Street because it moved faster than anyone else." - lots of financial developers
27
28 Enterprise distros - trying to recapture Solaris's release model. Change every 2 years.
29
30 Great for some markets, not good for others.
31
32 "Change is the only constant" - Heraclitus (greek philosopher)
33
34 "It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory." ~W. Edwards Deming

37 Back to openSUSE
38
39 our release cycles are now 8 months long, giving the developers time
40 to work on integrating major new features in a much more relaxed
41 manner to make things work better together.
42
43 But what about users who need the change that has happened with Linux
44 over the past 8 months (i.e. new hardware, new features, bugfixes)?
45
46 Tumbleweed is the solution for that, a "rolling" stable release based
47 on the last stable openSUSE release.
48
49 What it is not:
50 - a totally new distro
51 - a replacement for the openSUSE releases
52 - a replacement for FACTORY
53
54 What it is:
55 - an addition on top of the last openSUSE release
56 - stable packages cherry-picked from FACTORY are backported
57
58 How to use it:
59 - read wiki
60 - use one-click-install file
61 - 'zypper dup'
62 - no repo priorities
63
64 Requirements of a package to get into Tumbleweed:
65 - package is already in openSUSE:Factory
66 - maintainer agrees it can be there
67
68 How to get a package into Tumbleweed:
69 - do a submitreq for the package to openSUSE:Tumbleweed:Testing
70 - or email me, or the opensuse-factory mailing list and ask
71
72
73 How it works:
74
75 - packages are linked back to the original repository in their
76 "base", or in openSUSE:Factory, depending on the package.
77 - first checked into openSUSE:Tumbleweed:Testing and verified that
78 they work properly (i.e. my machine boots!)
79 - checked into openSUSE:Tumbleweed
