seriously , this is an accurate description of the currant skill set needed
( if you don't believe me Google "openSUSE vs. Ubuntu" and read the threads) ,

No, it is not; neither would those threads justify your position.

openSUSE is very widely used, and that description is by absolutely no
means a prerequisite for general usage of it. I know this from
experience with speaking to _many_ openSUSE users, from my own usage
with the distribution, but also direct experience since my whole
family use openSUSE.

What's one of the biggest shames is that people confuse "The Package
Manager" (a YaST module) with YaST. This means YaST gets an awful lot
of stick for previous problems with the package manager, since YaST
itself is pretty pacey, reliable, and an awesome administrator
settings application.

Kind thoughts,
