servers, I'm one of them :) On the other hand, most people I know are
using SLES, CentOS or Debian when it comes to servers, even if using
openSUSE on the desktop. So we definitely need to break out from the
"desktop OS" stamp.
I'm running openSUSE on many servers (ok, as many as a hobby allows)
and I couldn't agree more. But let me point out (again) that it won't
work as long as we have 18 months of official support only.
We're probably going somewhat OT here, but I guess we do have a bit of
a "desktop OS" image. However, if we want to break away from that, we
need more than marketing. We could do with some more work in optimizing
for deployment on servers - minimum selection pattern, snmp, iscsi,
systemd, syslog, etc.
I still have two 11.1 servers exposed to the internet
Evergreen/11.1 is basically dead and I'm really thinking about
replacing one with Debian now. I really don't want but the
workload/software stack on that machine does support Debian much
better than openSUSE and I don't need to think about full upgrades
that often :-(
Most of my systems are running oS 11.0 or 11.1. I think I may even have
an elderly 10.3 somewhere.
