OMs are big enough to write legibly on them why they exist. (nuf said)

OMs work in puters that don't boot USB. (I still have many in use that won't.)

OMs are cheap. (no need to decide what stick can be erased to provide home to
latest iso)

I don't need separate rescue media often, as reduced need is one of the
pleasures of multiboot systems, of which virtually all my own are.

Whatever. Just choose a rescue system/media of your liking and have it
available when needed.

I just suggest that, for openSUSE, you download and "burn" the rescue
image for each release that you currently have installed (that currently
is an XFCE image). Use a cd, dvd, usb stick.. you choose. Just have it :-)

(No, RescueCD or whatever is not valid for the purpose,
if that's the only one you have. Each distro with its
own rescue media)

(The openSUSE installation media can work on some cases.
But it is not complete/powerful enough.

Me, I just have one single usb stick for all the 13.1 systems I
maintain. With a paper label tied with a string. They sell those labels
by the thousands in boxes. And I keep the sticks in tin cigar cases (no,
I don't smoke), or tin tea boxes. A big wire or chain key loop would be
nice, too. But that's me. You use whatever you want. Perforated cards,
fine! Crystal memory cubes, perfect! As long as they boot and work in
your hardware >:-P
