GeckoLinux is a Linux spin based on the openSUSE distribution, with a focus on polish and out-of-the-box usability on the desktop. The project’s latest rolling release snapshot carries the version number 999.210517.0 and features a number of new features. Btrfs is now used as the default filesystem, zRAM is enabled, and the EarlyOOM service is enabled to terminate applications which are using too much memory. “This release offers several quality of life improvements for GeckoLinux ROLLING users. By majority vote, the default filesystem for the various Calamares guided installation options is now Btrfs with transparent Zstd data compression. Of course, all other modern Linux filesystems are also still supported via the custom partitioning option. Additionally, zRAM swap is enabled out of the box, and the EarlyOOM daemon is also enabled to help prevent unrecoverable system freezes in low memory situations.” Further changes and details can be found in the project’s release announcement.
