Switching Linux Distros 2014: How Is It?

First week of November 2014, openSuse 13.2 was released and I installed it in my fresh computer, as in new hardware, never been used. I installed GNOME and started configuring it and using it. Then my plan was hatched after a week to switch to Fedora 21 when it comes out of development December 9th.

The schedule of its releases gave me the idea. openSuse 13.2 is coming on November 5th and Fedora 21 is tentatively coming later, hopefully by its developers' estimate on the 9th of December. Then I figured I should try and document at this stage of linux distro development how easy is it for an average user to switch distros. With two linux distros coming out of a long development ( a year) cycle for each of its own release, it's timely and fortuitous that someone try and describe the process.

Next post, I will show some details.
