Well, that's freedom of choice...

Personally I think that the PackageKit designers would be well-advised
to simply use YaST's design for package-management.

I certainly hope not!

PackageKit's "Add/Remove Software" is hardly usable while YaST's package
is the best there is IMHO...

Packagekit's Add/Rem would be fine if it returned partial hits while

Now it just returns exact matches, and that is what makes it seem

It's interesting that both PK and YaST provide installer capabilities
and YaST seems the "official" way in openSUSE but PK is being improved
and duplicates the functionality.

What is the point?

The same for Totem and Banshee. Totem seems only for video and Banshee
seemed only for audio, but both don't do what they should very well and
try to do more and more with the same percentage of functionality

A nonsense for me...
