well, it is old news !
Someone told what you told and I'm enswered ...
Things like "run level editor" was exatly what I'm "running away from"
when I
migrate to Suse since version 6.1, it is what I call "steps back" .
I've been using Suse just because it can do this job in a "simple and
way, if Suse no longer can do it in the same way, I'll migrate to another
one !
but, like people told in a several msg in the list, I spend a lot of money
several Suse versions ( 6.1, 6.3, 7.0, 7.2, 7.3, 8.0 ) and my clients
several times more money them myself !!
I, in my name and in name of all of my clients, have the rights to scream

"Suse can be reaching a lot of new clients with 8.0, but can be loosing
a lot of old clients too !
Suse can afford it ???"

this above is the end of my second msg in this subject, and what I'm
in the list just confirm that are a lot of people thinking just like this
I don't "WANT TO" use another distro, it depends of what Suse will do
with 8.1 !
and one last question : If 8.0 is "so good" why the last upgrades of
products fo Suse ( Email Server, Enterprise Server, Connectivity Server )
based on 7.3 and NOT in 8.0 ???
