Well I would not say it is widely used. Not as much as Fedora or
Ubuntu certainly. We used it in our college to the extent that we had
local openSUSE repositories on the network but if you talk about the
openSUSE community, there is a very low-traffic opensuse-india list.
Jigish Gohil from Vadodara drives the list and the very small
community. Infact I can count on a single finger how many active
openSUSE evangelists exist on mailing lists in India.
well, most of the opensuse users I have come across use computers to get
things done - and since opensuse works out of the box, there is very
little to discuss about. My kids have opensuse on their netbooks, and it
just works - including wireless, movies and music (which is all kids
care about anyway). In ubuntu nothing works properly which is why there
is a huge noise on their fora (which is out of proportion to the number
of users). Fedora is experimental, but of late very well behaved. As for
Redhat, much more stable and supported, so less noise.
