Exactly. The OS is centralized around Yast. If you need some system configuring, you know where to go, and you know it's going to work with the system. The system isn't loosely controlled with some generic DE default utilities.

Sabyan is a fav of mine.

Also Suse, my dad has an older copy of it, web surfing is a lot faster.

That is the part that drives me absolutely nuts about all the other linux distos.

Say I have to change the sound, or look at the hardware. With any other distro, I have to think "Hmm, would that be under "System" or "utilities" or some other third party program, or is there a command to open a program that will do it?"

Call me crazy and flame me, but that seems like one thing Windows really did right that Linux needs. Linux is nice with the flexability, and customizations you can do, but it really seems to need a central way of configuring everything.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Yast is nice, but it has nothing on Mandriva's Control Center. If you've tried SuSE, try Mandriva. They are both RPM distros based on Red Hat.

My main problem with SuSE is not the OS itself, but the fact that they have a partnership with Micro$oft. Steve Ballmer called Linux "a cancer" and then partners with one of the largest distros. Although SuSE will contend that the partnership is very loose and is only in place to fix compatibility issues between Windows/Linux, I still think M$ is up to something.

Hmm... I forget when the last time I used Mandriva was. All I remember was that the font was whack, and it made everything really hard to read. Other than that, I remember I liked it for some reason, but that's when I was an absolute noob to Linux.

Btw, I don't believe Suse is RHL-based, although it can utilize RPM packages.

Mandriva is RHL-based, while Suse is its own.

I'd almost argue to say that anymore Mandriva is its own anymore, it branched off RHL about 10 years ago and has really become its own distro rather than just a close clone.

Suse was originally a German translation of Slackware. Then at some point they decided to use RPM, and then not to long ago Novell bought it.
