SUSEWatcher was replaced by zen-updater without asking the user. Now that
people got used to it and its functionality, it is replaced by opensuseupdater,
without asking the user during installation.

This would not be a problem, if it supplied the same functionality.

Since zen-updater did not have any moral problems by giving the user the free
choice which sources to check, opensuseupdater should not have either. Why
would one artificially restrict the application, if the opposite was seen as
sensible for zen-updater?

I think it was even advertised that with zen-updater installing/updating was
now a lot easier. So now it will be advertised that people did not use its
functionality in a sensible way (third party repos) and thus an new/old updater
will restrict them to patches only. Give the user the freedom to decide.

Factory is obviously not a good choice for updating once the final was
installed, but it was just an example, you can replace it by any other source.
