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.

Not sure if with /. or TheRegister, any way, by now has surpased everyone, even with /. publishing the same news item
3 times a day, and 1/3 of them are hoax, at least they haven't had any software review based on screenshots...

The current status of the nerd/geek news sites is very depresing, anybody knows of any good news site?
