I disagree. OpenSUSE 10.2 isn't bad at all (10.1 was horrible BS though). I won't go into too many details here, but SUSE 10.2 is one of the finest distros available right now. It would be nice for Mint if we had some of SUSE's features, e.g. "Yast". Or the desktop polish that SUSE comes with out of the box. :wink:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I think Clem liked everything but the package manager. It's one of the distros I have on my computer and it's very professional. I had my share of problems with Yast. It took a number of tries before I could even connect to the repositories and update. Everything seems a bit slow, but with a faster computer it would probably be ok. I can see why experienced Linux users would like it.

Well ... you have to know how to set it up properly. And using alternative + complimentary package managers such as "smart" or even "apt" (= apt4rpm) is not that hard. However I agree that things such as "smart" should come pre-configured and ready-to-be-used out of the box ... but unfortunately they aren't. But as I said ... it's not that hard. :wink:
