yes and no.

yes and no. While yast is available as an option, Ubuntu isn’t really
designed with yast in mind… so it’s probably useless.

yes… but Ubuntu by default is Gnome centric. But certainly, you CAN
run konsole even with a Gnome desktop.

yes and no. There are probably 100’s (yes 100’s) of differences between
Ubuntu and openSUSE command wise. In come cases it’s just version level
differences, but in quite a few cases, it’s an entirely different source
code base for a particular command. And obviously, there are tools that
are present on one and not the other.

I’m REALLY not sure of the point of this. At the end of the day, I bet
I could list over 1000 critical key differences that might actually
matter… but matter to who?? And why?
The differences do NOT matter to most. But there are differences.
There is NO reward for compiling such a list and it’s out of date the
minute that it is created and updating such a list could be a fulltime
Again, for the majority of users, they won’t see that much of a
difference. For a few of us, the differences are major… IMHO, there’s
no need to produce the list for that “few”… we don’t need a list.
