Ben,

You missed the point. I am not saying don't have updates. I am saying
why doesn't OpenSuse have a package system that works.

Mepis, Kubuntu, Mandriva, Fedora update time: 1-15 minutes.
OpenSuse update time: 60-90 minutes.

I am currently running all of these, so I know the times. (Except
OpenSuse, which was way too slow to keep using.)

If I want to add a new package on any of the systems listed above, I can
have it downloaded and installed in 20 minutes tops, usually more like 5
minutes. With OpenSuse, after 20 minutes, the repositories are about
33-50% scanned.
