Right, they're not. Applications and packages are not the same thing. Only YaST

So, from now on we will have to call you zypper - because what you say
is wrong and is confusing our users.

So, applications and packages *are* the same thing?

No.

You could say "I want to install the libre office writer", which is an application. And you do, not needing to know which packages need to be installed.
