I agree on accuracy, not on honesty. But, of course, it's a question of
choice and of the kind of connection you want to have with users.

Think to the Novell slogan: 

Your linux is ready! Are you?

Does it attract the attention? Yes. Is it convincing? No. Why? Because
it's not true. Together with the comparison with Vista, it's just full
of hype, and users can perceive it immediately. And you loose of
credibility.

The old, definitely more honest,

SuSE - Simply change

worked (and might still work) a lot better, just to cite an example.

Regards,
Alberto
