yup, it's flamebait... ;)
lol, just the opposite for myself. i don't do "big" stuff, but i network small office's (real estate companies and such) and setup their linux workstations. on those i use Debian (possibly the flagship "community" distro).

agreed that a "name" distro helps with some clients, but i think "community" distro's (like Debian) will be around long after the corporate market swallows the "names" or they decide to drop your product, support, etc...

I like SuSE for the most part. granted i haven't used it much, but from what i have seen it seems like a nice piece of work.

you shouldn't have a problem with SuSE fitting your needs.
...although there is always Debian ;)
