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.

No one ever had to read the help of InstallShield or the .pkg of MacOSX or the .pkg of BeOS or the also great, QNX app manager. YaST2 should be easy to use too.

It is that easy. I have installed a lot of things with YaST and have never had to do anything other than click the program I wanted to have installed. Can it be any easier?
