    Y'know, there's a checkbox in the summary window giving you the option to keep the software manager open. Is it really necessary to request this unchecked as a feature?

    i voted for it..

    just as an idea you may not be familiar with: let me suggest that next
    time to not again use something like "(just like Synaptic for e.g.)" as
    info to try to attract more support from the openSUSE developers or
    clarify what you are asking for..

    because, a well known social phenomenon termed "Not Invented Here" (NIH)
    could cause many in the position to make the decision to reject the idea
    immediately, without due consideration..

    read more on NIH: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Not_Invented_Here

    and, remember many of the openSUSE developers have been working with
    YaST before there was a Synaptic....SuSE has been around a LONG
    time...so your info is lost because they might not know how the other
    operates..

    [i mean, many come here and ask (for example) "Which linux text editor
    is most like "Text 2012 Professional Ultimate for Win8?" and i just have
    to wonder what feature they are looking for!]

    i don't think so...

    hmmmm...let me say it a different way: i have put the /etc/sysconfig
    setting back to 'close' (as YaST is default installed) and i've not yet
    been able to find the checkbox you mention, can please help me find it?

    maybe a screen shot posted to paste, please..

    because when i find it i want to see if click it, will it persist
    through many uses of Software Management or does it have to be clicked
    each time..

    if the checkbox is more easily findable than i have experienced so far,
    and if clearly explained and its action persists, i'll consider removing
    my 'for' vote..

    You are right i was not familiar with that, thank you for tips on how to express some points of view that will work fine for other openSUSE/SUSE members.
