I sharply criticized it. However I understood later why he had such a bad experience with the package management: the YaST interface is totally different in GNOME. That especially affects Software Management, which has an ugly, highly ineffective interface.
Why this difference between GNOME and the other window managers and desktop environments?
I mean, I am not a GNOME user, but if I were I’d be rather disappointed.
Oh yes, the GTK version is such bliss - it lacks such useless buttons as Select All + “Upgrade if newer available”, which completely cripples you if you have packages that change vendor and zypper dup / -t package won’t pick them up because of it.
Oh yes we’re no stranger to that problem here in the VM test land.
Well, I use KDE, thus it is not a problem for me. As I wrote in my first post, everything began from a negative review which found me in total disagreement, of course. However I could at least understand why the reviewer’s package management experience was negative, because in GNOME the Software Management default interface is totally different and, IMHO, not very effective.
Also I still don’t understand why this thread ended up among countless rants. It wasn’t meant as a rant at all, more as a mere statement of facts and perhaps I wanted to get some info, which I did.
