Your frustrations are due because you're a debian user "stuck" in
suse-land. If you were a suse user then it wouldn't bother you,
My point was more about one distro not being advantageous over another
distro to learn linux or programming. It's not like gentoo has python
and suse doesn't. It's not like ubuntu has a bash shell and slackware
