GeckoLinux offers both seasoned users and new distro adopters an easy way to try an openSuse-based spin loaded with features and an ample inventory of the leading Linux desktops. The developer released a major update of GeckoLinux earlier this week. I enjoyed testing the beta version last fall, and I was even more pleased with the added embellishments packed into this final version. Among the attractions of GeckoLinux are its innovations within the openSuse community. These include non-free packages not found in openSuse's default repositories.

Although I am a Debian Ubuntu guy I downloaded this OS and burnt it to a USB Drive. I was pretty impressed with the Distro and it included persistence by default which is nice. I have to do a little more study on the package management, but it seems like a very good and easy to use disto.

Hi Jack, thanks a lot for the positive comments and for the coverage, it's always appreciated!

I should clarify that the GeckoLinux Rolling releases based on openSUSE Tumbleweed haven't been updated yet using the new Kiwi build method. That's why they still require the login password on the live session. Once I work out the bugs and polish the images using Kiwi I'll release them, hopefully sometime this month.
