Well, yes and no. We get users who often ask about how to get
the latest kernel on their build because they want new features
(not just backported fixes).
Well, SLE kernel doesn't only contains backport
fixes, but also
This is why just thinking in term of version is not good enough
Tell that to the users... versions count for them, and for some
scripts, kernel code, basically everything what was already said
I agree. If someone does a review of openSUSE they are going to run
"uname -a" to figure out the kernel version. The story that will be
written is that openSUSE comes with a really old kernel. No one
writing up a review will go through the trouble to understand the back
Then there will of course be people that cry foul, and rightfully so.
However, perception is reality and openSUSE will very quickly be
labled as the community distribution with the "really old kernel" even
if that is not technically correct.
I think there are users who are looking for a
stable openSUSE with a
kind of long term support. For these users the kernel version doesn't
matter. For myself, I have openSUSE installed on all my computers. I
use these computers for working and not for playing around. I don't care
about the version number of the kernel or anything else. It has to work
and has to be stable, that's all.
Another point of view is our project "invis-server". We are developing
an openSUSE based small-business server product. If we heard first of
the possibility that there will be a free SUSE Linux Version with a SLE
Core, that was something we are waiting for years. Without such a SUSE
Version, there's no future for our project.
If we fear any reviews at "Heise open" or "linux magazin", then the
thing that has to be done is to give such a SLE based openSUSE the right
name. A name which points at the intention to build a stable openSUSE
for long term use.
