What you have to remember is that openSUSE is still has its short and
curlies in the firm grasp of Microsoft.

You don't think so?

Well, I suggested to a friend who is working on an important project
which will benefit thousands of disadvantaged people to use the
openSUSE's OBS. His reaction was - well, I won't embarrass you with it

Basil, this is opensuse-factory not opensuse-gossip-sharing. Nothing of
what you said has anything to do with the thread, so behave!

I know that but you have to admit that openSUSE has a big PR problem.
And this is not gossiping but trying to point out something important.
The view "out there" is what I summarised above.

a key - and that one needs a trust relationship with one of the keys on
your system. And there's only one key on every system - the Microsoft one...
