You are right, that aiming for all possible goals is vague. But isn't being an allround distro a pretty specific goal? My feeling is that this is a big part of the SUSE identity. We always tried to address a very broad range of users.

I would like that aspect to continue being so :-)

I think there is a misunderstanding here.

openSUSE aim to address any user. but where is openSUSE the best? for which user is openSUSE the best?

IMHO, openSUSE is the best as new, non technical user. The best thing on openSUSE is friendlyness and this is not the most important part for admins.

A thing that get this even more complicated is the fact than, on a server point of view, the best openSUSE... is SLES :-() essentially due to the extremely long support time available.

So we aim to be the better distro for anybody, but we already reach the goal for non technical users (as soon as we get rid of zen and beagle on 10.3) and we challenge other distribution for technical users...
