Opensuse Leap 42.2 and parallel_studio_xe_2017_update1

I just installed Opensuse leap 42.2 and later tried to installed parallel studio xe 2017 on it and it tells me that its not a supported OS. While on the other page about installing intel compiler on opensuse ... it says

"COMPATIBLE Intel Compiler Versions: In order to use Intel® Compilers (C++  or  Fortran) under the lastest release of OpenSLES/SLES/SLED, you will need the latest version of the Intel compiler(s).   Do NOT try to install older Intel Compilers such as 12.x, 11.0, 10.x, 9.x or 8.x under OpenSUSE 12.3 or newer - they will not install easily and probably will not work - and they are NOT supported."

Now question is should I give up on opensuse of intel ? that is I need to go back to previous version of intel compiler or I need to find old opensuse distribution but for old I will definitely y need old intel compiler....

so what are my options ... if opensuse isn't good option I can switch to ubuntu ... will it be a good move or I should stick with opensuse ....
