[opensuse] Philosophical question?
I have been sub'ed to this forum for many years. I'm not sure which was my first opensuse version (I remember 10-something) but suffice it to say that I have followed the trials and tribulations of the user community here and I wonder what it is about opensuse that really sets it apart from all the other distros out there.

I mean, what is its main claim to fame? The answer to that has changed over the years but I wonder what it is now. Maybe someone here can make a compelling case for the use of opensuse instead of any other linux distro. If so, I would like to see it. What use case would cause opensuse to be selected? I suppose in order to answer that, one must be fluent in the various linux dialects. I am not; I barely have enough time to use this opensuse 13.1 and admin the adjacent webserver running ubuntu 16.04lts.

As my version is somewhat dated ;-) I will be moving to something better by year's end. Maybe 15.1, maybe something else. I really haven't had time to research, which is why the original question.

Thanks, Fred
