"A sign of maturity of the current state. Changing everything everytime would be a major nuisance."
If you accept that the "current state" is as good as openSUSE can get, sure. I don't really accept that, though.
"Don't trust what magazines ship. Especially the tabloid kind of computer magazines have advertised betas (now known as milestones) as the final product, which is certainly wrong and misleading."
I think you've mistaken my point. I don't get openSUSE from a magazine. But a lot of new users have, and probably will in the future. The advice "don't trust what magazines ship," is fine - but pretty unlikely the users in question are reading LWN to see this. And my main point was that I *like* that openSUSE supports >3GB of RAM on 32-bit, not whether magazines are a reputable source of media in the first place.
