Thread: Can anyone explain why they're against something like Ubuntu's Software Center in openSUSE?

    Default Can anyone explain why they're against something like Ubuntu's Software Center in openSUSE?

    I noticed on openFate, that a request for a software install GUI like Ubuntu's or Linux Mint's is getting killed. I'm curious as to why. I see this as a HUGE benefit towards promoting openSUSE and making it easier for people to use and it doesn't stop power users from still using command-line/zypper to manage installs (or even keeping the current YAST software install interface as an "expert" interface). Can someone explain what's so bad about this?

    As far as I understood the previous discussion it is a license issue.
