If you don't like YaST: just don't use it!

Can you name better graphical configuration tools for FTP, LDAP, NFS, display settings, ... under Linux?

I don't think that Mandriva has that number of configuration tools available...

You can like it or not but in my opinion YaST is the most comprehensive set of graphical configuration tools available today.

YaST will be integrated in Gnome with 10.3. That means it has the same style like application browser and Gnome control center and looks very good.

I know that some of OpenSUSE tools are not available under Mandriva, but I can't recall any of them. FTP, LDAP, NFS, display settings are all available under it.
