What makes openSUSE better than Ubuntu?

http://forums.opensuse.org – I've been using Ubuntu (my first experience with Linux) for a few months, and while I think it's great, I'm wondering if there are even better distributions that might suit me more. I don't know much about openSUSE but I was led here by some "Distro Chooser" that said I might like it. Obviously there are a lot of people here that prefer openSUSE to Ubuntu, so my question is, why? Is it for more advanced users? (Distributions)
