Yes, of course; but old versions have old holes. Ie, security bugs. Plus,
you may need some new features or something that has been solved recently.

Any user of old version of SUSE, like 7.3 is better off with it then with any
contemporary win based system with similar hardware requirements.

There was no updates for a long time, but the same is truth for any win before
XP. On the other hand there are distros that have current software, 2.4 series
kernel and very small hardware footprint.

openSUSE can't be all in one with current number of developers and
maintainers. Programming can be high hanging fruit for majority of us, but
there are other areas where developers are involved now, while users with a
bit of interest can do the same tasks, giving developers more time to code.

For instance instead of grumbling about bad <put name here>, take time and
think what would better, find example, or make some draft. Discuss your idea,
and see how viable is it. Developers have high opinion about themselves, as
majority of them have good reason for that in 4-5 years of college, but I
haven't seen many rejecting good ideas. They do discuss them, but discussion
is not rejection.
