Following that I want to give you a very recent example.
German "Linux Magazin" covered the name change voting today and mention the
wrong spelling issues as well;
(German: "Außerdem werde der Namen oft falsch geschrieben." = English:
addition, the name is often misspelled.")
I talked to a well known heise news author about the issue and he told me:
"you know what? We just don't care anymore. We write OpenSUSE and be done. Who
knows when they'll change the spelling
again. It's not like our readers would not understand what we are writing
I can relate to this somehow.
This has been the only spelling since 2005. SUSE did change their spelling multiple times
tho, I feel we got confused
openSUSE Linux (?)
This guy I mentioned is around since S.u.S.E. times. For him the spelling changes all the
time. He does no longer care.
I can understand that.
