This is not about telling people why we are better, but about distilling what is our specific purpose. What really drives us is not a random choice of openSUSE as one project where you can do free software, but the things others have said in this thread, like the right balance between open contribution model, quality, and freshness, the spirit of tools such as OBS and openQA, etc.
A why needs to be specific, otherwise it doesn't give purpose, direction, and motivation, and that's what this "starting with why" thing is all about.
