On Ubuntu, after you have logged in, it asks you if
you want to upgrade. You click yes or no. There is nothing to configure
or isos to burn. We have nothing like that.

We do have something effectively equivalent that is modestly more

1-login on a vtty as root (vtty recommended but not required)
2-# zypper clean -a
3-navigate to /etc/zypp/repos.d/
4-edit each file there, replacing each instance of 13.1 with 13.2
5-# zypper ref
6-# zypper dup
7-reboot into 13.2

Nah, c'mon, please. Modestly? I've got 80 clients. Surely someone can

If it takes as much as 3 minutes to set in motion, you're dawdling. To reduce
the time for your 80 systems, adapt one of Werner's sed lines for #4, and
reduce all the above to a simple script.

give us a yes/no box to click after a new version is released can't they?

Sure, given both motivation and requisite talent, and understanding a
checkbox is something one normally finds in a GUI, which is better to not
have running during the upgrade. It is after all FOSS. If 2-3 minutes/system
is a problem for you, script it, or motivate somebody.
