Personally, I love the SuSE name. I don't use it because some people get
somewhat pissed, so I use the modern name instead. Thus I only use SuSE
when I want to stress the point that I'm talking about is old times.

It's pretty common to prefer nicks to polysyllabic names. In a written context,
SuSE was a good name, openSUSE very bad. Exactly how is one supposed to write it
as a first word of a sentence? That there would be any question is what makes it
bad, not whatever the answer may be.

Reminds me. There is an old bug with the speller in open/libre Office: it
does not accept "end of sentence. openSUSE ..." as correct. I just checked:
LO still corrects openSUSE to OpenSUSE.

you have the ability to correct your dictionary, don't you.

No, you don't. Not in this case, Try it! :-)

Hint: it is some kind of orthography rule.
