- Portability/Laptop/Nettbooks and so on
- Connectivity of devices
- Support for syncronizing devices
- Home server setup, mediaserver, DNLA, UpnP, file , print and so on.
I think our problem is that we want to reach all of these at the same time. ;)
openSUSE is a desktop distribution with server functionality that can be used
by developers. In practice the primary focus is on desktop but we distribute
packages for the rest as well.
Actually I find the server part the best. And that
part is really good
from my point of view.
The desktop I find to much focused on the latest KDE version or the
latest Gnome version.
To do everything at the same time is not possible with high quality.
Choices must be made just as the choice to drop KDE 3.5 down the line
openSUSE has different needs:
* we use it as basis for our enterprise server and desktop products
* we want to grow the openSUSE community
openSUSE is used by the community nowadays in all the different scenarios you
mention above - and you'll surely find one vocal user for each of them. ;)
Should we focus the distribution more?
think it`s always a good idea to build brick by brick. Choose a
strategy for focus areas per release.
And what do to with the other use cases?
them for future attention and loving :-)
Thanks for responding Andreas!
