which the kind of reviewers that I'm thinking of obviously don't, and then
there is another bad/erroneous review.
It's easy enough to tell stupid people "don't be stupid" - but it
A pop up asking if you want full disk install or a dual boot with windows is a very good
idea in my mind. Especially for users that are unaware what the defaults are.
The YaST partitioner is not very beginner user friendly (at all..). And also I, for
example, have no idea how to change sizes of partitions still. What I do for a (re)install
is open a live ISO, install gparted, create the partitions in size I want and then during
install choose use current setup and link the partitions myself to / or /home etc.
People saying here that the problem is with the user are not very new user friendly.
I do agree that openSUSE is great for giving the user options for the install, it’s not
the most intuitive, compared to other (widely used) installers.
But that’s just my 2 cents.
