Hi Anlanc,
I also do have very clear reasons, at least this is what I learned to
hope ;-)). As I decidedly continue to be in favour of Ubuntu, I did not
feel the need to elaborate on this. It is not my intention to offend anyone
and I also have no reason at all to badmouth Ubuntu or anything else.
However, Christian Rink expressed interest to hear a more detailed
reasoning, so I wrote down my technical whys to switch over to SuSE. 

The track is called "Re: Bye to Ubuntu" and, again, it is not meant to say
anything negative but solely expresses my very personal base of decision.

I am optimistic that we will now be able to concentrate on the technical
side of things, once more. 

If there will be a need, I will be happy to continue to discuss reasons and
advantages/disadvantages of Ubuntu versus OpenSUSE on sounder or via PM.

Thanks much and kind regards
