  • Minimalist.

  • It is easier to resize because the root partition is the last one.

  • Compressed image is much smaller.

  • Reproducible image build, so easy to customize.

  • It is armv6 with floating point support, so could be faster.

  • Over 5200 successfully built packages from openSUSE:Factory:ARMopen in new window. If you want to see package changes, here is a logopen in new window.
