Perhaps it's useful to think of 3 pillars of user base :
1 - distributing and stabilising, upstream software, developing inhouse projects
2 - stabilisation and development towards SLE (including ISV projects)
SLE and ISV projects don't sound very much like a key focus we ought to have here in the openSUSE context. I suggest to really focus on openSUSE.
3 - growing Linux market, with a reliable, easy to manage full featured Desktop
Agreed, except that we have never limited openSUSE to the desktop, and I wouldn't want to change that.
But 3 is IMO let down at present, by releasing prematurely, and long term benefit decisions with short term costs
I'll claim that a large part of the problem is testing too late focus on fixing things too late in the cycle.
