Very good reason NOT to run open Suse kernels.

Most of the time when I have run them, I get some tainted module or
another.

So by saying userspace is broken -- you've just broken many instances
of the opensuse kernel -- likely depending on which packages you have installed,
but I would have no way of knowing any complete list.

I think one of the virtual machine packages taints it, among others.

So... do you want to modify your statement and say that devels will
debug such oopses, or should users just not run opensuse kernels on the risk
that they install proprietary and/or non-standard modules that can cause
tainting?
