Not to have it, while other distro's have it, is different.
Do you understand?
It is not you cann't do without it, but why if it is available?
And it looks real nice, good job done there, which i also appreciate much.

Sure, no argument that you should have the apps you want etc.

I think the key point though was in Herbert G's comment in the other
thread on this topic.

eee-control depends on a
special kernel module (eeepc-acpi) made by asus. Since openSUSE 11.2 the
kernel has is own kernel module (eeepc_laptop) for this, which does the
job. All these backports of eee-control and eeepc-acpi origin from pre
openSUSE 11.2 time and shouldn't be used for openSUSE 11.2 and above.
Best they would be purged from the Build Service, because the more harm
than help.

I've been fine without the eee-control... just trying to see if I
missed anythign cool by no longer using it :-)
