Re: possible yast porting? was: slashdot on fedora-marketing-list

Well Ok I'd like to some people for their actual dissection of what
the problems were. I guess I don't work in production environments
(not that Fedora is even for that??) and didn't realize so many users
hatrid of YaST. I've always found it pretty simple to use but maybe
that's just me. At least reasoning was given..hopefully the team can
atleast add some more system-config-* programs or something.

I second this, I have tried and retried over the last 3 years  and seen
YaST fail to  deliver so many times.
We are phasing out as many SLES as we can because of YaST  and the fact
that it's absolutely crap
in a production environment.
