"It wasn't an easy choice. As openSUSE Product Manager,
Michael Löffler, explained in an e-mail to the openSUSE
community, "The default desktop is an issue that many openSUSE
users and contributors are passionate about."
"He's got that right. I think that Linux attracts people who
want the most control possible of their operating system and the
idea of there being any default choice, no matter how good, rubs
them the wrong way. The mere fact that there are dozens of Linux
desktop distributions and several programs like SUSE Studio, which
lets you easily roll your own distribution."
