Indeed, are there not other, more constructive ways to improve people's
perception of openSUSE ? Do you not agree that the immediate perception
problem can be in part addressed by a more fair ordering (based on
popularity), and more helpful descriptive text explaining that ?

As others mentioned before already, the first question to answer is whether a
distro that is aimed at those users opensuse is aimed at, needs a pre-
selection or default. If it needs one, a decision needs to be taken.

Some claim that a pre-selection is needed for new users, i.e. those that are
not informed enough to make a choice. As SLE does have a default and is mostly
aimed at an enterprise environment, i.e. one could argue that admins install
it and they do know what to choose, this argument does not seem to be valid.
So what are the objective reasons to have a default in SLE, maybe we could
apply those to openSUSE as well.
