Come on be serious, the truth is SUSE still plays a large part of the Linux community. As for your whole YAST thing, are you incapable of operating at the command line SUSE still has one.

Is it YAST or your inability as an administrator to edit via command. This is more nonsense over and over give the distro credit for a solid release and focus on it in comparison to the other distros.

YAST has improved A LOT! in 2 years. I am suprised teh previous poster wasn't able to get it to work but not that suprised. now it is really easy and painless most of the time.

as for the command line, unless its a server OS as a desktop user (and a person who sells computers primarily to desktop users) I don't ever want to "have" to use the command line.

Suse/SLES/OpenSuse configuration has traditionally a lot of differences to the common Linux System. So yes, many times you are better off using Yast as some plain config files aren't there or do not work as expected. This is what puts me off every time but it might make perfect sense to a long-term OpenSuse user.
