Linux "Let's face it; some distributions have better controls for handling display issues than others. Two that do it right out of the box that come to mind include Fedora (Red Hat) and openSUSE (Novell). Each includes tools that minimize the need to do what I gleefully refer to as the 'Xorg dance'. Basically, these options mean you are going to be spending more time exploring what these distros have to offer, yet less time wondering why your resolution looks completely off. Unfortunately, even with the latest release of Ubuntu, we have yet to see this level of functionality."

"YaST has a lot of things that need ironing out, namely in the performance department. The old oaf works extremely well, but it's slow as hell."

When people say that they often refer to the package management module of YaST.
Name one other module of YaST that is slow?

Most modules do complex things, yet they popup within 2 seconds when selected, I wouldn't call that slow.
