IMHO, this could have been handled differently. E.g., the updated kernel

As to a patch - well, it is easy to find and apply, if you're a software
engineer like myself. What about the average Joe user ... So much for the
strategy statement: "The target users of the openSUSE distribution are
people
who need to get work done and want something *stable* and usable for their
every
day needs."

God, this guy sounds like Rankin :p

Vadym - just remember you catch more flies with honey than you do salt ;-)

Perhaps a bit more subtle, ie: less sledge-hammer effect :^)

AND, when did you worry about catching flies?
