Though to be honest, I want to update my linux
system about as often
as I change Win OS's. Win 7 was out for about 12 years w/support. I was
an early adopter and am still using it. But never was Win7 keeping me
from using new programs (well until recently). How many progs from
an opensuse release from 2008 would work on a system from today?
How much do you
pay for openSUSE and how much did you pay for Windows?
Please, we should never use this argument. To say "openSUSE is free, so don't
expect the quality of payed system" destroys all the hard work invested in it.
openSUSE is free AND please don't expect the (poor) quality of a paid system.
