openSUSE - Home for developers

Making openSUSE irrelevant to ~98% of potential users, and alienating most of
existing users too.

2.c.) As project, we will not focus on the following anymore:

* Applications not related to development (directly or indirectly)

Developers also do other things with their computers than writing code. Even
if openSUSE had all the development tools perfectly packaged and ready to go,
developers would never use openSUSE, unless it is _also_ a great OS for all
the other tasks they'll do on a desktop and server.

Any idea to make openSUSE a highly specialized appliance for a niche use case
is a horrible idea.
