Stabilized

A lot of hard work has been put into improving openSUSE via openQA the automated testing tool which helps ensure the latest openSUSE releases are not full of any nasty surprises for end users. 13.2 also comes with the shiny new Btrfs as the default filesystem for the root partition and the tried and tested XFS for /home. The new 3.16 Linux kernel also comes with several new stability features like detecting if your Dell Latitude laptop is falling (to the ground). Additionally, the YaST codebase has matured after being ported to Ruby meaning that it is more responsive and reliable than ever.
