"May be there is a difference between SuSE and OpenSuSE nowadays?!

I exclusively use OpenSuSE now and was under the impression those were equivalent."  

The main difference between SuSE and OpenSuSE is that SuSE contains some non-GPL software not directly available for OpenSuSE. The most obvious examples are that Adobe Reader, Flash, Java 1.5.x, and RealPlayer come installable by yast on SuSE whereas you need to find them and manually install them for OpenSuSE (yawn). A less obvious example is that a non-GPL soft-modem driver is included in SuSE but not OpenSuSE. Note that the kernel for SuSE is described as 'non-GPL'.
