My 2 cents: Please, NO !!!
One of the things I've always loved about openSUSE is the strict


between system and user. Entering YaST means the user is going to


system related tasks.

You'd still have to enter the root password though, just later when
you call
any module from YaST Control Center.

Unless you manually override that in the polkit config of course. ;-)

or run `sudo -E yast --qt`

I'm even firmly against having no 'root' but just plain sudo and

the user's


Even "sudo" requires the *root* password in openSUSE's default
config, as you
should know. ;-)

Although, installer's default is also to have root have the same
password as
user, which makes me question security of that policy ;)

As the first user, yes. What if you have multiple users?
