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.

The diversity of car's models
by D.Ph on Sun 15th Sep 2002 14:32 UTC

When I ve come home from office day after day, ther are so much of car models infront of me, traffic jam ;) . Think about it as a diversity of IT, OS(es). What will you should do as you buy a car's spare part: tell car workshop about your car brand, model... what am i saying here is that please pick up a purpose-able car for your according aim. So is Operating system. Like Darwin's theory, the diversity of biological development, let them develop as the way they ve been targetted.
I am using RH7.3 and every new rh from 5.x to 7.x, I ve just bought handwritten cds. and also suseBox professional 7.3,debian, slackware or winXP/98/NT/2000, I tried. Think nothing to argue about them. And rememberable that IT is for commerce as well, mean let choose which OS gives you the best solution in a particular business or gain your career a lot.
have fun
