There are people who question Shuttleworth and Canonical's motive behind
Ubuntu and the "corporate involvement" makes people suspicious, but
openSuse?  I tried out 10.2 and I actually had to agree to a license
agreement from Novell!  The only times I've had to do that was for
Lin/Freespire (understandable), Fedora and openSuse.  This doesn't seem
'free' to me.  OpenSuse seems like one of those distros that assumes the
user is clueless and tries to do everything for the user automagically
and is heavily customized while Ubuntu seems to stay a hacker distro
while being a convenient Debian.  Am I totally off or does anyone agree?
