SuSE, openSUSE "Many changes have gone into the SUSE Linux operating system since version 10.1, including a name change: the entire operating system is now known only as openSUSE. All of those changes appear to have been for the better - openSUSE 10.2 is as great a release as 10 was - but despite the improvements and bug fixes, there are still several underlying problems that prevent openSUSE 10.2 from being competitive with commercial desktop operating systems."

I have been on many forums - SuSE and Ubuntu and frankly - there is no big difference except the fact that Ubuntus users in general use to adore their distro as it were a kind of holy grail.
I fail to so how Ubuntu is more open or more about community than SuSE. It seems that Canonical just managed to create a halo of being special in the minds of some (in fact - too many) computer users that they start to treat the company and the OS as something which is beyond any criticism. And that is not a good thing.
We should value a distro in its own terms, not in the terms of an abstract community which is great part is a herd which moves from one distro to another.
