|openSUSE 13.1 in the Windows Azure Gallery|
openSUSE is an officially endorsed Linux distribution on Windows Azure, so you have a few choices on how to get up and running:
- new VMs can be started from a prebuilt server image of openSUSE, via the Azure Gallery. This image is built originally in SUSE Studio, and shared in our Gallery as well, so you can see what's inside it. Cloning our Gallery appliance provides a great foundation for customizing your own appliance;
- or, you can start fresh with a 64-bit openSUSE template. When you choose Azure as the image format, we'll add the Azure Agent, and make the necessary system changes to play nice with the cloud infrastructure.

Either way, have a lot of fun!
