Most people think 1-click is some form of black magic - they don't understand it's just rpms and repositories, exactly like a manual install - only a bit easier.
No. The last few times I tried 1-click installs I always got loads of packages installed that had nothing to do with the stuff that should have been installed with the one-click thing. And I had no way to stop it from doing that, no "summary screen" that asked me if I wanted to install all that crap or anything.
Probably because I have the habit to always run "zypper up --no-recommends" because I usually do not want the recommended stuff, and the 1-click pulled in all the recommended packages of the last years.
Anyway, it *is* scary black magic, and people should avoid it like the plague if they don't want random crap installed on their machine.
Yes, I know. Ubuntu users would not care about the random crap. But I do.
