These are indeed a lot of good reasons to work on open source software. But I would also like to ask, what is the why behind openSUSE, which is specific to openSUSE and can't be done by contributing to any other of the many projects which are out there? The answers to this question is what I think should be in the center of what we present on the web site as the purpose of the project.
Somehow I feel that ~90% of the worth of what we ship in the openSUSE distribution comes from upstream code which sort of makes all those many upstream developers contributors to openSUSE, even without them knowing it.
Thus I do not think we need to limit us to "unique selling points" (German: Alleinstellungsmerkmale) (which IMHO is an awful concept from sales people) of openSUSE.
We should tell the people why we are good not why we are better (than X).
Let's tell the world, that we do this because it is easy and fun to contribute to openSUSE, even though it might also be fun with Archlinux or whatever else.
have a lot of phun Bernhard M.
