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.

Eugena, your past two articles have been hypocritical and cynical. How much are they paying you for this sh*t ??

You seem to think SuSE are trying to make things as difficult as possible for the user!!! From my experience, SuSE is one of the easier-to-use distributions around. Sure, it's not as easy to use as Windows, but things ARE continually improving (like the package manager). The new package manager from what I have seen is a big improvement on current offerings.

PLEASE stop posting ridiculous articles trying to get a bit of attention. Please DO post some reasoned and rational articles that show just a little bit of thought.
