I was also frustrated by reading that unixheads was shutting down, which has
the effect of leaving only two openSuSE mirrors in the US.
Both of those mirrors have reputations for poor bandwidth, leading to a
discussion of "why doesn't Novell just spend a few hundred $ per
month to guarantee a good mirror for the US"? The fit-and-finish of Ubunto
is just noticeably better than openSuSE at this point in time.
Is this a reflection of Canonical spending more money on their flagship than
Novell is spending on their's?

So anyway the good in your counterstrike is to stress that openSuSE does work
(for most users I suppose).

I suppose and hope too.


There may be legal reasons why US mirrors are less desirable than other places.
But I never choose a US mirror anyway. I always choose one halfway around the
world. (Germany often).

Reason: The users there are asleep when I want updates, and the mirror is
almost always less busy.

Oh, and sleep on lid close has never been reliable on my Dell till KDE 4.5.
Who ever finally fixed that: Thank you.

At one time I had a Real Sig. Its been downsized.
