Arch have pretty awful documentation. Ubuntu is huge and commercial,
their documentation is also horrible-- incomplete and terribly out
date. Debian's is also very lacking and assumes great technical knowledge. Only Arch is a shining star of excellent documentation. Fortunately with systemd and other projects that make the
system more unified across distros, I just use the Arch wiki for
everything, and it's mostly applicable to openSUSE too.
Did you check the http://activedoc.opensuse.org/ website. Did you see that website is totally collaborative once you register and login ? Aka, to improve the doc, you can propose, comment etc ???
THIS IS EXACTLY one of the things I've been bitching about. Yet another undocumented mystery sub-domain. Want to know why nobody sticks around? It's because you have to lurk for a year or have personal connections before you can even navigate!
I don't mean to give the wrong impression with this thread. As I mentioned, I wanted to gauge interest in fixing smallish
issues, not core, fundamental, ideological, or
changes. I don't think openSUSE should be a clone of Ubuntu, but
is considerable room for improvement in terms of ease-of-use and
For sure, but as already stated, we need people interest in, that have also the strength to commitment. Sure we're legion, but we need legion^2 :-)
Thanks anyway for your report, if we're still fighting, just prove we're still alive :-)
I think we can fix all this, but when I've proposed it in the past I got resistance to the point of obstruction. Lots of people saying how it couldn't be done, only a few saying lets give it a shot. I busted my ass trying to do it (Richard Brown even provided a VPS that I couldn't remember how to use at the time) and even managed to recruit developers help from Novell! Yet we couldn't do it, because of the obstructionary nay-saying.
