Re: [opensuse-project] openSUSE 2016: taking a picture of openSUSE today

This discussion goes between 10 people (maximum) on the project list,
maybe we should aks our users what they want to see. Maybe we are
totaly wrong, and we really miss the targets of our users.

It works the other way around. We make up our minds about which users we
want, then we focus on creating a distro that attract those users.


Well, but maybe its to late for such an decision. We have a lot of users, and i dont know if the ideas (mine, yours, all the others) reflect that. I guess the people on this list have a high technically background. Some working for SUSE, some are part of, well i call it the Commodore 64-Generation.
But, we have a responsibility for our current users, and our decisions should reflect these responsibility.

For sure, we could take a look over the edge and see what works for others. But this would include that openSUSE "does not work". But it does, and sometimes i really think its strange that it does.

Sometimes is think its the uncontrolled growth of repos which makes openSUSE attractive, and "one click" installation of everything. If it would be that way, we could limit the base distribuition to... (see below :-).


We should support office and servers. This should be the rock solid
base for anything else, like repos for gamers, designers and what so
ever.

Big +1.
