SuSE, openSUSE From SuSE Linux 8.1 on, YaST2 comes with a new, powerful package manager. It supersedes the classic YaST2 single package selection and integrates the YaST Online Update (YOU) and post-installation add-on selection at the same time. It lays the foundation for supporting multiple installation sources like a traditional set of SuSE CDs, add-on product CDs, patch CDs, FTP servers or even local directories - all of which may contain software packages to install. Specially optimized versions were implemented for both graphical user interface (the YaST2 Qt UI) or text interface (the YaST2 NCurses UI), providing each type of user with the tool that best fits his needs.

>and this version of YAST looks better than ever

That doesn't mean that YaST2 is good. The fact that is better than before, does not make it good. SuSE is a commercial company and YaST is one of its selling points. If it ain't good, it will be critisized. It is my 'job' to do so, I have absolutely nothing personal against all these companies and individuals I write about.

>Meantime, Eugenia, chill out for heaven's sake

What do you mean by 'chill out'? Not work on this web site? Because this is part of my job.

>John C. Dvorak - we don't need another hypercritical cynic.

I like Dvorak most of the times (not always).
