It's not like the desktop is openSUSE distros' strength anyway, so I'm not exactly sure where that perceived over-emphasis comes from.
Maybe the laptop being the only computer you can see on www.opensuse.org?
Maybe because the Tumbleweed description mentions desktops and office applications but no obvious server/cloud/edge/embedded use cases? (Samba and git straddle multiple realms).
Maybe because the Leap description only mentions 'pick your desktop...'
Maybe because news articles like https://news.opensuse.org/2022/03/02/leap-reaches-beta-build-phase/ emphasise Plasma, GNOME, Enlightenment, but don't mention a single use case besides desktop, and asks users to test it on " on multiple laptops, workstations and other hardware devices"
Conciously or not, I'd say openSUSE has a desktop bias problem that it needs to address, especially when it comes to how we talk about ourselves.
