    My searching has brought me the best answers:
    Give up OpenSUSE and go off to Vector linux, Ubuntu, etc. Which are not my options.

    I'm confused. Why give up on OpenSuSE?
    It seems to be working perfectly fine, according to linux standards of "perfectly fine".

    I'm not sure,
    I like OpenSUSE, and I was on the verge of leaving it when they came up with LEAP 42.1 it was bad, then 42.2 was decent.

    In the midst of hardware failure, I wanted to make sure that at least I know OS is good to go, so I went back to 13.2, and that's the standard I intend to have until I have 1 month of free time eventually. In this time, I will also go from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

    For the time being, I am still searching for methods to get CF19Mk6 to play nicely with OpenSUSE, specifically the soundcard.

    I am using a work-around, but there are draw-backs, i.e. I need to run the script on boot, and if Windows has the mic off, it still doesn't work

    many years ago , i started out with "red hat" ... uuuggghhh ... drivers ... what drivers !?
    then i switched to ubuntu ... wow ... what a difference ... about like when i went out with my gf's big sister !
    for a while ubuntu was good ... worked very well for what i was doing ...
    then i began to notice things were *changing* ... i started becoming more and more frustrated with the lack of certain functionalities and shortcomings .
    the final stick-a-fork-in-me-i-am-done was when a bunch of twits decided that copying that *fisher-price* desktop of windows was a good idea .
    i started looking around and found "linux mint" .
    yeppers ... i have been fairly happy since ... it does have some of the same audio problems of other 'nix versions but these can be overcome .

    I read through that thread UNCNDL1, but I'm confused, was there a conclusive solution?

    CWB32, I actually went backward.
    I went from Linux Mint 16 -> Ubuntu 14.04 -> OpenSUSE 13.1 ->OpenSUSE LEAP 42.1 -> RHEL -> OpenSUSE 13.2, and I am holding ground.

    Not referring to anyone in particular.
    Maybe it's too dumbed down for most Linux snobs, but Zorin works. Out of the box works.
    I know it is shiny Ubuntu but it works.

    This is from a Windows user who wants fully working OSX on a Toughbook.

    I have to say that Zorin is freakin awesome. (I even paid for the Pro version) It seems to work on my CF-31s without a hitch. Haven't tried it with the CF-C1... I hear the screen rotation buttons don't play nicely but I'm not sure.
