(BTW, zypper is a damn big CPU hog - can take up to 98% of the CPU!

So... When you get in line at the bank, the cinema, the market check-out, you periodically let someone behind you go ahead of you?

Of course. I was brought up to be polite and obliging.

Programs use CPU until they've completed the computations they must do. It's up to the OS to aportion CPU resources to competing processes.

The only thing that reduces a given program's CPU consumption below 100% is the invocation of I/O operations that cannot be immediately satisfied. That, and sleeping...

So, is this why when I am watching TV and zypper kicks in I get a stuttering/jumping image? If so, I'm heaving zypper out the window.

In a case like that, renice zypper to -20, so that your TV-watching
process is always considered more important.
