In general, I want to move everything distribution related out of
www-o-o, and expand on it on software-o-o (which I started doing
in [2]). We cannot possibly explain everything we need to explain on the
project page, so having a page that explains more about the distribution
in another place sounds like the way to go. As for the slogan, Get it!
Discover it! Create it! was a thing back when the only services openSUSE
provided were the distribution (get it), Wiki (discover it) and OBS
(create it). Nowadays, that's not very representative of the openSUSE

This in itself throws up a few things, for example when targeting new
users they are likely to just think openSUSE is a distro if were lucky
maybe they'll think its 2.

In order to avoid extra confusion I think in the places we are targeting
new users using phrases and wording that are more specific to openSUSE's
Distro's makes sense. www.o.o becomes an interesting case where we
likely want some balance of both because most people hitting it are
probably interested in the distro's. Although everything else the
project does should be covered there somewhere somehow.

Unlike other distro devs, we can't spend the entire page bragging about
the distributions though, unless we send them off to some other page
first. This also gives us the opportunity to send people links to the
distributions page instead of project page if they want to learn more
about the distributions, and send people links to the project page if
they want to learn about the project instead of various scattered wiki
