Re: [opensuse] openSUSE LTS
Richard Brown composed on 2016-10-04 16:14 (UTC+0200):

The commitment from openSUSE is that a Leap Minor Release is easy to
upgrade to with minimal changes to expected workflows. Besides that an
openSUSE Leap Minor Release can include significant changes to the
operating system, such as Kernel, GNOME, and systemd upgrades.

# zypper se -i libgtk-3
i | libgtk-3-0 | package | 3.20.9-1.1 | x86_64 | openSUSE-42.2-0

That means upstream WONTFIX bug
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1269274 , and
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=367499
apply, and also the upstream WONTFIX bug they depend on
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=757142 ,
creating a usability handicap with no solution in sight. To me and I'm sure others with lower than average vision, 42.2's new UI impediment won't be posing a minimal change to important workflows.

Have I made my point, or would you like to continue splitting hairs?

openSUSE Leap is an LTS release.

I don't see LTS explicit in Leap's official description. You have not convinced me that distro shoppers looking for an LTS would consider it to be so, which is probably where the term counts the most.
