It does not use the term "openSUSE" but rather SuSE Linux or just SuSE. I
think we should change such terms to openSUSE when reviewing articles.


and the Wiki Guidelines agree, see:
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Wiki_Style_Guidelines#openSUSE_spelling

there are other guides there and in
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Wiki_Guidelines

on the other hand [this *was* covered a few weeks ago on this list]
there may be historical references in which both the variations you
quote _might_ be correct...certainly there is only one correct way to
present the name in directions aimed at currently supported versions..

by the way (to anyone reading) i see that the cited page has been
marked "reviewed" and meeting quality guidelines....i decided that
despite the "mentoring sessions" this review process is ineffective
after i stumbled across many "reviewed" articles between christmas and
the first week of January which didn't come close to meeting the
guidelines...and, i lost interest in the project, quickly.

and, have decided to channel the time i have available to the
forums...there is SO little experience there..
