what is the why behind openSUSE, which is specific to openSUSE and can't be done by contributing to any other of the many projects which are out there?
OK, this is my reason: in 2015 I find openSUSE a sweet spot between freedom, easy to contribute (thanks to OBS), quality (thanks to the skills and knowledge of current contributors and openQA) and blending edge (thanks to the new Factory/Tumbleweed)
This equilibrium is per se quite an achievement, and I choose free source because Bernhard's reason, and openSUSE because this achievement.
I agree very much with the above except for me the "blending edge" is something achieved by OBS and the myriad of devel repositories. I very much like the concept of the new Tumbleweed, but I am not yet a Tumbleweed user and I don't know if I ever will be. It depends on what the future holds for the formal releases and for Tumbleweed's stability.
For me OBS and the contribution mechanisms supported by OBS is 2 legs of the 3-legged stool. Quality (current contributors and openQA) is the third leg.
