did I understand you correctly if I say that you propose that openSUSE focus
on gamers?
Sure why not, gamers are generally pretty cool people, often there reasonably tech savvy, there not about to stop using desktops anytime soon and a lot of them are not that satisfied with the latest windows releases.
Added to that the largest PC gaming company is bringing out a Linux based console next year meaning that the one thing gamers have been missing on linux (high quality games) will become available. As gaming on Linux is probably going to be a growing market it seems at least logical to spend a small amount of effort and try and take some of that share. openSUSE is already in a good position to do this as a user centric distribution. All it really needs is a few good how-to's some publicity stuff like benchmarks showing how much faster games are running on openSUSE compared to Windows. Producing documents and playing games will be the 2 main areas for desktop computing in 5 years, as of yet I am yet to see a new device (Mobile/Tablet/Embedded) that can do those things better then a good old keyboard and mouse, strategy games in particular.

Just my 10c on the subject

2) Are there any other aspects relevant in this discussion? Can you
summarize them?

Speaking of the desktop focus and how to attract more users or being
cooler than other distro,
maybe we have to be interested by the "gaming wave" that is coming to
the linux world.

This mean to provide an easy way to install/update the latest version of :
- graphic drivers,
- Steam !! (,
- Voice chat software for gaming,
- wine.

OBS is really cool, but I doubt that basic desktop end user takes time
to understand what it is when he wants to play.
