Are you happy with openSUSE Leap's feature set?


Did openSUSE Leap live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of openSUSE Leap go as expected?


Would you buy openSUSE Leap again?


I would always use openSUSE Leap in scenarios where stability and security is needed. Sharing binary packages with SLE (as of 15.3) is an additional arguments for stability and offers a migration path for scenarios where more support is needed.

I would look for solutions like openSUSE Kubic or MicroOS for hosting container workloads due to the additional management tools they bring.
