Duh! I really like when i write openSuSE with small o and u. It seems
more stylish for me. Also some times ago think I saw something like
that with S.u.S.E., am not very sure but whatever the case its cool

Yes, it is indeed wrong.  openSUSE starts always with a small o.

Is there something on the wiki where we can document this?

I think I read a statement to the contrary. Only now have I learnt about
the first letter being lowercase, and verified the local dictionary.

OpenSUSE. (testing spell checker)

Argh. My dictionary does not contain "OpenSUSE", but the spellchecker
takes the above as correct. Bugzilla? >:-)

Let me see mine.

openSUSE (red)
OpenSUSE (red)

Besides there are languages that don't use articles ahead of noun and have
problem to put openSUSE as a first word in a sentence.

Example:
The openSUSE is community ...
The openSUSE is distribution ...

Translator has to change sentence order to avoid having openSUSE first, which
in both examples gives somewhat strange result.
