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.

why people keep arguing here? if anyone doesn't agree with any article here, i think it can't be avoid since every person has different background and taste. So it's best to just give an opinion without trying to insulting the author.
--/quoted by bahamot--

Indeed, because they don't have anything better to say. I don't see how hard to give the nice feedback and discussion back without insulting to the author. This author isn't forcing the thing to change, which this author is just giving the self thoughts/opinions/feedbacks/reviews into (mixture) one for people to think of this.

However, do you, people, have any idea what Mandrake, RedHat and SuSE main goal? Their main goal is to give the easy friendly Linux distro for the people. Therefore, if this author still think it's not friendly enough yet, then those companies will have to work harder to get our newbie grandparents to have the ability of to use Linux.

Oh btw: This author's name is Eugenia. I am new to OSNews. Nice articles, Eugenia, that you have written so far but some of them are much different to me. Because, I think Gentoo Linux, *BSD and etc are easier than Windows. ;)
