People are having/have been having problems with a new version of oS
and they are asked to submit "bugzillas" (did someone overlook the
naming of "bugzillas" 'bugmoids'?) but they are have not been aware
that the kernel used in oS has a "problem" and may be the cause of the
hassle about which people are furiously writing "bugzillas".

The kernel bug is not in the 11.1 release, but in Factory:

http://en.opensuse.org/Factory#What_is_the_Factory_Distribution.3F

People who run factory knows that it is unstable and expect bugs.

Who would have thought that the kernel in oS is designed for a server
(but then oS *is* the test bed for the commercial version, right? -
stupidos!) and can be made to perform better if compiled with the
options described in this thread?

The default kernel is adequate for most desktop use. It is just not a
low latency kernel for heavy multimedia work. This is why I suggest
OpenSUSE put out different kernels for different purposes- a server
kernel, a balanced kernel for masses and a low lantency kernel for heavy
multimedia.
