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.

> Eugenia, you are effectively reviewing this new package manager without even trying it.

This was NOT a review. It is under the EDITORIAL section. It was an "our take" based on these web page of the SuSE employee. It is my personal opinion on how it looks and based on its description too, it doesn't look right. It looks crappy, no matter how I turn it. It just doesn't make me wanna use SuSE. It turns me away. This is re-invention of the wheel, IT IS NOT INNOVATION.

> 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)

What the fuck are you talking about? Are you talking about the AMD story a week ago? Read the AMD comments of mine from that post to see what really happened!! HELLO???

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