3.- What is your perception, your picture?
My picture is that openSUSE needs a Long Term Service (more than the 3
years that we can afford with the EverGreen program). I'm talking
about 5 years. If we can penetrate in the server market like Ubuntu
LTS (sorry for the comparisons but are inevitables), openSUSE will be
a very used and strong distro.
I am wondering why you think a "Ubuntu LTS" model will hit the sweet
spot? Whatever that sweet spot maybe, as we have not defined that.
I don't think that LTS has any advantages from a life cycle perspective.
What Ubuntu LTS has going for it is that, it carries a lot of the
mindshare, gathered through Mark's marketing machine, and it carries the
option of buying support.
Within this is a whole other discussion topic that can easily fill a
thread onto it's own. Thus I am just going to let it rest here.
