openSUSE sponsors many different projects and conferences. Below is a list of partners, donors, communities and conferences the openSUSE Project would like to acknowledge. If a community, partner, donor or conference is not listed, please contact ddemaio (@)


Partners cooperate with openSUSE as part of mutual interests. The partnership allows all parties to join forces and amplify the common interests and true potential of the open-source community. From offering cloud images to offering pre-installed openSUSE distributions on hardware, Partners of openSUSE are vital to the use and expansion of openSUSE and Linux/GNU distributions. Linode, SoftIron and TUXEDOComputers


Donors to the openSUSE Project help the project by providing support through donating hardware. Network cards provided by CPanel have helped with infrastructure needs. TUXEDOComputers provided a laptop to be given away at the 2018 openSUSE Conference. Aleph Object provided the project with two LulzBot 3D Printers. These types of support encourage a vibrant and functional community. We appreciate all the donors community support.
