that it is a gift for the non-professional Linux user.
SuSE had (I can't say if they kept it this way) created special SuSE config
files that were stored in /sbin, and rewrote the standard Linux config files
in /etc at boot.
I was used to hand editing some of my configs, and I kept having them rewrote.
I realized that I needed to figure out the SuSE config scripts, and I bailed.
I have been using Mandrake for about a year now, and I really like it expect
for their product testing. They seem to have many unrecognized bugs that need
fixing. But drakconf and urpmi both rock, and I don't know what I would do
