OpenSUSE is a free open source distribution of Linux. It is developed by the community-supported openSUSE project and sponsored by SUSE. Novell acquired SUSE in 2004 and continues to contribute to the project through various channels along with the community. Novell markets openSUSE as the best, easiest distribution for all users.
Choosing a Linux OpenSUSE server should be based on familiarity with its feature set. OpenSUSE uses the ZYpp package management system to deploy different programs. It has a very good dependency system that will install program dependencies so the users do not have to. OpenSUSE can be installed automatically using the AutoYaST program that installs the operating system without user interaction. The openSUSE Build Service provides developers with a program to roll out versions of their software with many distributions. When releasing several new versions of a web based program, developers are able to deliver and maintain new packages with impressive elegance.
OpenSUSE hosting is good to use when your developer is comfortable with ZYpp package management and has a strong background in using the openSUSE Build Service.
