SuSE, openSUSE The openSUSE community has elected its new board of directors, who will take office in January 2013. Welcome to Raymond Wooninck and Robert Schweikert, who will have a lot of work ahead of them as the board helps navigate openSUSE through some choppy waters. openSUSE remains one of the most popular Linux distros around, but their delayed release of 12.2 in September has led the team to spend the last six months reworking their development process, and both new members are planning to prioritize improvement of openSUSE's communication strategies as well.

They may have their work cut out for them behind closed doors, but the openSUSE crew tend to put out the most consistently high quality distro around. Great package selection/management tools, excellent community support, toss in the woefully underrated build service and one click installs, yada yada yada and it all adds up to one of the best linux experiences around. That doesn't even take into account being able to leverage the experience to get into their (Suse's) commercial offerings.

The tone of the posting seems a little down but I'll take it the same way I take news about new Debian leaders being appointed: there are challenges in getting a high quality release out the door on a consistent and timely basis, but until the results convince me otherwise, I'll remain quietly confident.
