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.

About Eugenia

Eugenia has written plenty of code. Anyone who's ever used the BeOS or downloaded apps from BeBits.com knows that's she's ported something like 80 apps to the BeOS.

OSNews.com should not be considered a standard "news site." It's never been any secret that Eugenia runs this site as a hobby - we're all guests. If you want a community based site, you should visit K5. If you want a straight up news site you should visit zdnet or slashdot. I've always found this site interesting and enjoyed participating, but it's always been under the rules set forth from day 1 - this is Eugenia's site and above all, she runs it in the manner she sees fit. When reading editorials like this, comments should be about the topic itself or your reaction to the author's opinion, not about the site in general.

By the way, as far as competing, at last check, both the Register and Slashdot do over a million hits a day. OSNews does about 70,000 on it's busiest days. So there's no sensationalism for the sake of publicity going on here.
