Feel free to add other good reasons
because I want to repay what open source software gave me...
I'm often said: "I thank you for your help, how can I help you?". Long time ago we discussed a foundation to allow individuals to give money.
My idea is than at the beginning nobody was a Linux user, as no (or nearly no) computer have Linux when sold.
So everybody using and being to use Linux have to begin at some moment. The question is "how can we make it use openSUSE?".
at the question "why should I use Linux" the answer is in the basics, and the most common answers are:
* first you *can* use Linux because it simply works * second using Linux is "friendly": you can share yours applications to your friends, you can prevent your chils from downloading illegally
and why openSUSE? because It's the simpler Linux version available, and because it's the one I can help you the best... because I know it.
people like also the fact that main developers of applications are answering on mailing lists: better speak to god than to the saints...
speaking to parents these two are important jdd
