SuSE, openSUSE Linux-Noob has reviewed SLED 10. "Novell's strengths are many, and I'm delighted to see the excellent work they have done in usability tests, and making the whole desktop feel like it's ready, ready to do business, and ready to serve its users. The development they've done with Beagle and in particular the 'computer menu' are fantastic and hopefully are just the start of better things to come."

There's no need to argue that this or that package manager is superior to YaST or vice versa.

Dude... yast isn't a package manager. rpm is the package manager that yast uses. Yast is a systems management tool centralizing administration from everything like LVM volumes to reconfiguring the network card, to managing users, to changing dns entries. It is sooooooo much more than a package manager and a pretty frontend to rpm is *ONE* of the things it can do.

Yast has various modules to administer different things. Try running this to see what modules you have installed one a SUSE system:
yast --list

Thanks for calling me Dude.
The Big Lebowski is actually one of my favorite movies.

But then, I don't recall calling YaST *just* a package manager. I just think lots of people use YaST to manage packages, and obviously my post, if read well, implies that YaST can do much more than that.
