@Maltimore @firstname.lastname@example.org Personal memory: SuSE is a rather "old" distribution that started out as a vendor of "boxed" solutions in Germany (loads of install / software CDs all along with mostly excellent documentation) and provided a load of custom installation / configuration routines such as the YaST tool. At some point, their SuSE Linux Enterprise Server still seems of some relevance, I don't know about the rest of their portfolio...
Oh, well I'm using the openSUSE Tumbleweed as I like an Rolling-Release distribution wich is Open-QA tested https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Tumbleweed as well as the Build Service OBS (https://openbuildservice.org/).
So for me SUSE has the same rights to existst for me as other distributions.
This is just a matter of taste and diversity is always good.
