Best way is to forget complains as current zypper and YaST in factory is
way faster than in 10.3, and developers are not done with improvements.

Well, that is not much of a recommendation- a snail is faster than zypper!

But how does it compare to smart?

If you're talking about the openSUSE updater that was horribly broken in 10.1,
then it is fine.

I run it without an issue. I don't notice any slowdown.

I run SMART on a few stations still (10.2) and they work as well.

In both instances I run cron jobs way late at night to handle the updates.

For smart I have two cron jobs smart update and smart upgrade. Then for the
zypper thingy, I have zypper -v refresh.

Seems to work.
