Sorry, but I simply do not understand the aim of your post. Or put
another way: what is your real agenda by posting this message?
You are using openSUSE because you want to be "updated with the *latest*
A most excellent choice for a solid and well respected distro. (I
understand that Mandrake has gone belly-up. Can someone confirm this,
thanks?) So simply stay with openSUSE and don't waste time downloading
and maintaining something which irks you - ie, Ubuntu.
Alternatively, why not follow the example set by your compatriots and
move over to Mint? I think that you know what Mint is all about so why
are you even asking for "a fork" to Ubuntu?
The wise man does at once what a fool does finally.
