openSUSE Leap 42.3 (64-bit Live)

Leap is the regular-release edition of SUSE's openSUSE community project. The Leap developers aim for a blend of community energy and enterprise stability, combining source code from SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) with community development, testing, and tools. The latest version comes with several improvements to the YaST management environment, including a new utility for configuring UEFI secure boot. You'll also find the Flatpak packaging system and support for the Portus container management tool.


Fedora 26 Workstation (32-bit Live)

The latest from the Red Hat-sponsored Fedora community distro includes the Gnome 3.24 default desktop. The Anaconda installer adds a new, user-friendly partitioning tool. Updates to essential development tools include GCC 7, Golang 1.8, and Python 3.6. Fedora 26 also offers better caching for user and group info, as well as a major new edition of the DNF package manager.
