I even saw the other day via their forum that someone had re-spun the latest openSUSE to include amongst other things the repos pre-configured. Marvelous!
I think people fall in love with a particular distro early on and they carry a flame for that distro forever. At one time I stuck with Simply Mepis no matter what. I finally tried Ubuntu (before the insanity) and moved on and never looked back. I settled with Mint Julia until Mint worked out the bugs in Mate. I'm using Mint 13 'Mate' now and I like it allot.

I reject the notion that Linux needs to be on bleeding edge when it comes to Operating Systems. There is a saying that explains my thoughts on the matter. KISS = "Keep It Simple Stupid"
