I completely agree with everything said so far in this thread. This type of publicity will not do us any good. And that is not only because they 'attack' a fellow project. Two other things went wrong: 1. The posts do not adequately address the target audience: CentOS is used as a professional product, so if we want to communicate to users leaving the project, we should remain professional. Memes are not the way to go in that sense, upgrading and sharing our documentation *is*, however. We should keep that up. :) 2. Good marketing should always take a brand's strength as a point of departure. When addressing new users we should explain what Leap is *doing right*, not what other distributions are doing wrong.
Looking forward: perhaps we can use the upcoming holidays to repair the hopefully minimal damage? For example by wishing everyone (in the FOSS/Linux community) happy holidays and a happy new year with a nice post.
These are my two cents. I am relatively new to the openSUSE community, so please let me know if I forgot to take something in account.
Best wishes, Milan
