This article shows you how to set up openSUSE Leap version 15 (15.4) on a physical PC with a bootable USB flash drive.

Germany started the openSUSE Linux distribution project, a community-only operating system.

The openSUSE distribution has two versions Leap and Tumbleweed. The Tumbleweed version is a rolling release and always gets updates. The Leap version, on the other hand, gets an upgrade only when the distribution version is refreshed.

You can run openSUSE distribution on a physical computer and gain experience. You must download the Rufus application and burn it to the flash disk to download the ISO file and create the USB installation media.
