It depends. Ubuntu has also a similar release model. And look at their

I know that such a release model would contradict Novell's need for
guinea pigs. But I can live with being used. I even like it. I use
Opensuse on a Workstation for the following main reasons:

Unfortunatelly I find no reasons to put Opensuse even on a home server.
And having the same repositories for both server and wks is definitely
