Why is openSUSE following others when it is supposed to be the
trendsetter - or so many of us think so?

Being a trendsetter does not mean to be leading _everywhere_. That simply
does not scale in terms of focus, resources, etc. The question rather is:
where is it most valuable to invest, to innovate, to lead for openSUSE to
be successful?

What did we do before HAL and what will we do after HAL?
Change happens - borrowing from physics, to every action there is an
equal and opposite reaction- Q.E.D. Some changes have been disruptive
and painful at inception only to become mainstream, stable and a
blessing, citing major shifts to ELF and glibc6 as 2 early instances.
There are things that were once core to Linux as a whole that are a
distant memory for us who have been around almost from the beginning.
I trust you guys to do the right thing - most of the time and as Linus
once told a gathering of suits asking about a roadmap "Linux is
evolution, not intelligent design", long may it be so.
