as I explained elsewhere, for me this ship has a working machinery and very
good steering, meaning that I can choose which course to sail ;-))
And mind you: While OpenSUSE is the basis for the Novell Servers and
OpenSUSE is sponsored by Novell, OpenSUSE is the free version of SUSE in
the way that Fedora is supposed to be the free version of RH.

This might not be what some people like but for me it is ok.

I also stated elsewhere that my focus is less on free vs less free but on
things that I need to be working to do my job.

Ubuntu might be great but I would need to buy different hardware to use it
as I like it to be used and this is not what I am going to do.

Kind regards
