I'm not an Android developer, but I've been a Linux user since 1995. I use several distributions because the people who I work with have special Linux needs. For my personal desktop and server boxes, I prefer OpenSUSE.
Why? I've met the original S.u.S.E. people at COMDEX, have used Novell products for decades, and (most of all) I just like how it works. Yast is the best native administration tool that I've ever used, and it allows me to be every bit as lazy as I can be with a Mac or Windows box. It's stable, mature and refined. After 18 years of using Linux, I expect my Linux distro to be as production ready as I am. It's not a toy.
