        No, OpenSUSE has caused no harm. And its a community project.

         Heh, yum is no way close to apt in first place. And trust me
Yast is good, the problem ( something which I personally heard SUSE
devs/employees say ) is that Yast doesnot tell the user much what it
is doing. But from what I understand Yast just *does* its job, which I
thinks is pretty good enough.

           Btw, I am Kubuntu user ( maybe a bit unhappy Kubuntu user
at times, thanks to *optimisations* by them,  I wonder why I don't
build the whole thing from svn, since as it is I am building a large
part of it daily. Time to change soon maybe ) .
