Vincent just told that there is no typical users, or types of users, that
openSUSE has focus on, so applied solutions in some situations are not good
for anyone. It will be good to have some focus, to at least desktop user and
server admin, like it is with kernel.

No I actually said :

"But there's been forum threads where this has happened to new users,
used to windows, and they have posted for help. They'd likely be ppl
in your "just drop" category, but have then thanked forum for quick
turn round on their issue, with it resolved.

It'd be wrong to use "focus on typical end user" to penalise those who
aren't. If openSUSE did that, then lots of us WOULD drop the distro!"

Have focus on "typical" users, even though I agree with Vincent; but
if you DO this thing, there's a huge danger of being patronising, so I
think it's a mistake to use this focus as an excuse to make things
unecessarily difficult for ppl in your non-typical category.

Please be more careful with your quoting in future.
