SuSE, openSUSE From SuSE Linux 8.1 on, YaST2 comes with a new, powerful package manager.

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.

Unfortunately, most people don't want to be educated. It breaks the routine. I live in the US, so I can't speak for the rest of the world, but it seems that, as a culture, we try more and more to think less and less. We want a risk-free society where all the "little" decisions are made for us. This does not free us, it merely breeds that dull grey social fungus known as mediocrity.
