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 do not get paid on OSNews by anyone.

That's what I do.
I believe what I wrote over there 100% and I am not taking back a single word. I truly believe that this package manager is just NOT suitable for the simple user. It just isn't. And I wrote this editorial to back up my claims with REAL arguments.

All you fanboys can do is just cry foul for critisizing your fav distro or OS.

I do not find my article illogical AT ALL. In fact, I have made my case very clear.
