Destination Linux has talked about openSUSE as the most underrated distribution .
There was a discussion on this topic in https://www.reddit.com/r/openSUSE/comments/oz6sut/efforts_to_fix_the_shortco...
Here are some highlights
It's because OpenSUSE is a humble distro. And the world's dominant culture is anything but that.
The community is really friendly and helpful, but we aren't many vocal about openSUSE like other distros like Manjaro or Pop_OS!. I think that we are focused on working (or other stuff) and not on promoting the distro.
Plus I've seen that people promote openSUSE but only when the user seems like they will like it or when they need it. This compared to other distros that get recommended no matter what the user needs.
This. I saw beginners asking for easy distros to begin their linux journey, and were recommended arch linux regardless.
I love opensuse, but even the small steps of adding packman so that you can watch videos online can be very off-putting to many. also every noob friendly guide online is only relevant to the ubuntu family, so even though openSUSE is quite easy, I do think twice before recommending it.
