This is not a openSUSE thing by itself. Ubuntu also has no "Linux" in
its name, and still people refer to it as "the Linux" because they
don't know any other "Linux". If they hear about openSUSE being a
linux distro, they usually don't need the extra hint of openSUSE Linux
to be sure to install a linux distribution, imho.

Centos is a binary compatible free community version of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux.
Fedora is the community project from RedHat which they use as testbed
for all their shiny new toys.

The naming discussion should also consider: do we want to be seen
close to SUSE? If so, we should should avoid any name change at all.

Cheers,
Bernd

Hard to say. For a lot of people, a brand with tradition means a lot.


in fact, why do we need to change the distro name when the only thing we
need is to take a different name for the foundation?

why not "Komodo Foundation" (just an example) and still openSUSE distro?
who care really now of the foundation name?

and, by the way there where not all this discussion when promoting
Tumbleweed or Leap!!

the basic error was made long ago when dropping "Linux" from the name.
Still today everybody knows about Linux, who really know about openSUSE
apart the Linux fans??

Being on the linux stuff for more than 20 years now, I myself don't know
the difference between Centos and Fedora...
