Personally, I love the SuSE name. I don't use it because some people get

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.

and after further investigation: my libreoffice oowriter says "openSUSE"
is correct as is and I do not recall ever checking that before.

Try again, at the start of a sentence. My LO autocorrects it to OpenSUSE, no matter what I do. If yours doesn't, you have disabled the autocorrector as you type.
