Why not "summary" as default?; then 'normal users' do not have to
use CLI (again) to allow all options.

Check this mail thread. There had been reason to stay with the current
default.

In the past a summary got displayed. There had been valid reasons
against this. While a summary is still an available option. See
/etc/sysconfig/yast2:PKGMGR_ACTION_AT_EXIT and the comments above.

To modify the configuration a user isn't forced to use the command line
or an editor at all. All you need is to call the YaST sysconfig editor.

Remember the intended user; we are the exception when we continually
play around with the CLI (which I admit is much more fun for geeks).

Could there eventually be an attitude to get openSUSE into a normal
user market, or will it be kept for 'geeks only'? "geez
--endrant".

What's a normal user? you, me, who?

I consider the current default ok. It return to the point where the
user started the journey.

Thanks,

Lars
