ISTR discussion somewhere that openSUSE has copious software developers as users.

Not sure I understand the beginning of the sentence. Massive abuse of infrequent TLA is not supporting fluent communication....
Is this documented anywhere, maybe with statistics, and reasons why?
I guess this is more about personal preferences and history. I can at least confirm the switch of one capable developer from Arch to TW, because TW 'just works', and he loves the KDE preset.
Since I don't code anything, I don't have a clue what might create favor, unless it has to do with openSUSE's BS and/or QA systems. I first tried it for several reasons, among which German heritage, KDE3, YaST2, and understandable network installation instructions for 8.0.
Just my personal and very biased view: Have tried nearly all distros and always returned to openSUSE, as it is - easy to install - easy to administer (YaST!) - supports KDE out of the box - openQA testing (specially for TW) - friendly community - OBS. If you have ever tried to compile software just for different flavours of a distro, you know the PITA around it. OBS makes it unmatched simple! - and probably some more if I think about it
Have a great xmas and a happy new year! Axel
