                  Search also in summaries and descriptions.

    Yes thank you for the zypper search options but YaST search is still an occasional preference for almost instant "something that does" searches.
    Box 1: OpenSuse 11.1/Win7 | Linux 2.6.27 Gnome | AMD 64 X2 6000+ | nVidia 8600GT | 2GB RAM
    Box 2: OpenSuse 11.2 | Linux 2.6.31 Gnome | AMD 64 3000+ | ATI X800 Pro | 1GB RAM
    Box 3: Win7 Premium Home | Intel P4 3.0Gz | ATI AIW 2006 | 2GB RAM

    In case you have a different point of view / theory / whatever, please provide some details about them. This way it sounds as if you commented just for the sake of contradiction.
