Welcome to the SUSE Linux Users Group Singapore!

You have reached the SLUGS website! We are sibeh slow in updating anything, yeah, we know! Anyway, better late than never, right? If you are here looking for the game Metal Slug, you're in the wrong place. This is the website of the SUSE Linux User Group, and SUSE can be just as exciting as Metal Slug. So, what is SUSE and openSUSE? SUSE and openSUSE are Linux distributions that originated in Germany in the 1990s, so you know it is quality engineering. In fact we believe it is the best-engineered Linux distribution! What's that you say? Ubuntu? Please lah, don't make us laugh! SUSE is used in supercomputing applications in Europe, SAP HANA for a bank in China, and web hosting servers for the Macau Government Portal. Ho ye wor! You can even run SUSE in Windows 10!
