Title: Ubuntu-like software center for Yast software manager

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: 嘉樺 張 (iamchiahua)

Description:
 
The 1-click install/uninstall software manager is more suitable for
general users. They just need to know the software, rather than the
package. The original package orientation software management is
- reserved for advanced users. Ubuntu software center(or MS XP Add or
- Remove Programs ) is a good idea to support the following two features
- (1-click install/uninstall) for Yast software manager.

Mainstream operating systems like Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac OS X
has its own 1-click installer(msi for Windows,dmg for Mac OS X). It
provides an easier way to install software and drivers. Opensuse now
also have the osi(#305582: Off-Line one click install (MSI for Linux)).
And they also have the 1-click uninstall program(Uninstaller for
Windows, AppZapper for Mac OS X).
Add this feature can make opensuse closer to the mainstream operating
systems. 
It can be combined to provide a web site like
http://www.apple.com/downloads/ (http://www.apple.com/downloads/) that
everyone download osi package is a good idea(#306924: Software Store
like AppStore/Android Market). This can be more effective marketing
opensuse, but also more acceptable to all novice.
