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.

I have to say that I agree completely, I used to like to visit OSNews to find some interesting news
not covered by more mainstream sites...

But OSNews has demonstrated an aptitude really depressing, publishing sensationalist news, bashing
almost anything with little reason, making ridiculous questions in interview(does any one remember
the GCC interview?), speculating about almost anything...

It wasn't bad enough Eugenia not giving credit for the articles (it was really confusing to follow a
link on a news item to find out that Eugenia had just cut/pasted the full news item), then censuring
posts, and now writing a review based on screen-shots... *sigh*

For someone that has never written a row of code(that I have seen) the superiority tone is really
depressing, specially in matter where the ignorance of the author is patently obvious, doesn't
matter if it's kernel architecture, compiler optimization, GUI design, microprocessors, Eugenia
always knows...

Eugenia, I hope you learn a bit of humility, you really need it.

Best wishes and good luck
