Why is openSUSE following others when it is supposed to be the

Being a trendsetter does not mean to be leading _everywhere_.

To begin with, one has to be first considered a "trendsetter" and the
management has to consider the organisation it manages to either be or
desire to be a "trendsetter".

Does the powers-which-are-controlling openSUSE consider themselves to be

"Being a trendsetter does not mean to be leading _everywhere_. "

Of course not. But there must be goal, a direction, a plan, an aim for
an organisation.

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?

OK, accepted.

What is Novell aiming at with openSUSE - and consuming resources?

One of the 'mandatory' questions I asked when interviewing potential
employees was, "Where do you expect to be in your career in 5 years time?".

So.....what is the "scale in terms of focus, resources, etc." to which
you are referring above to achieve what openSUSE will be in 5 years
time? :-)



Take the bull by the tail and look the facts in the face.
