I think the two-distro options feels like the best one at the moment.
Would the Essence-based openSUSE release also subsume the Evergreen
team as well? Could it? Am I really behind the curve and Evergreen is
already gone?

I don't think so. IMHO even with the SLE Core, I don't think longer
(3 and more years) support of every openSUSE release (released once a
year) is feasible. After all, even Richard in his talk (I have only seen
the slides so far) mentions numbers like ~1000 packages in Core (even if
the key ones) and ~6000 in total. We simply do not have resources for

So either the intervals between releases will be longer or not every
release can get full length of support. Either way, what's new is that
the basic set of packages (Core) can get much better level of support
even for releases with shorter support length.

(Of course, this is only the way I see it, I may still be pleasantly
surprised for once.)
