    Why isn't SUSE showing up????

    Are we back into the stealth marketing mode again?

    It looks like most of those distros are niche distros derived from
    something else. I would have expected to see openSUSE in there alongside
    Fedora and Ubuntu - but it's quite possible the author has a problem with
    the deal with Microsoft.

    But it is disappointing that they neglected to mention anything about
    SUSE at all. There's nothing from any other project out there like SUSE
    Studio or the Open Build Service - and those truly *are* the future of
    Linux - being able to do customization based on specific needs.

    Ubuntu and Fedora have customization kits, but nothing that approaches
    Studio and OBS (OBS, of course, being able to build packages not just for
    SUSE/openSUSE, but also Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, and a bunch of
    others).

    I agree, SUSE Studio blew my socks off when I first saw it!
