Announced two years ago, on November 19, 2013, the openSUSE 13.1 operating system introduced a great number of new features, including the GNOME 3.10 and KDE Software Compilation 4.10 desktop environments, LibreOffice 4.1 and Calligra 2.7.4 office suites, Mozilla Firefox 24 and Chromium 31 web browsers, YaST 3.0, and Zypper 1.9.

In the initial announcement, the openSUSE Project noted the fact that they've extended the maintenance life cycle for openSUSE 13.1 to three years, but today they're announcing the end of life on January 5, 2016, which is ten months earlier than expected.

What this means is that starting with January 5, the openSUSE 13.1 operating system will no longer receive software updates and security patches. However, the Evergreen community team is already thinking about picking up the maintenance, which means that the OS might receive updates for a longer period.

Considering 13.1 was the last openSUSE distro I used that worked with my printer I will certainly consider openSUSE dead.

You know you want me baby!
