So if you haven't had enough with SLES 15 be a hobby Beta with LEAP 15. For those missing your favorite DM the KDE on LEAP 15 is good , I'm sure Gnome is there too... I have been running with Windows 10 Beta's for the past couple of years and with RS4 coming out very soon, it good to see KDE can compete with what is good crisp pictures on Win 10 RS4.
