      my god, over time I am failing to see any difference between distros. If only one of them really did something different, it would eat the entire market instantly.

          It has gui. But it is via USB/DVD as offline upgrade. Online upgrade via zypper is only for experienced and courageous users.

            15.1 is service pack to 15.0. It focuses on newer kernel drivers and newer mesa for support contemporary hw, release minor updates and rebase DVD with installation fixes. Only some packages, like KDE applications or KDE frameworks have bigger updates.

              There was no zypper in the 90's. In the 90's, you would have been sitting with a box full of floppy disks, hoping that none of the floppies had errors and that rpm would not fail. Trust me, zypper dist upgrades are a thousand times more efficient than what we did in the 90's.

                  I've been doing it since forever with no problems. But still, for most users, the Ubuntu way is less scaring.

                  Yes, I know. It was just a way of speaking. An allusion to the times where everything had to be done from the terminal. In a way, I'm complaining that it's starting to look old. Ubuntu has a upgrade GUI since forever now.

                  but hey, on the plus side, at least there's a way to upgrade the OS. I didn't have that on my good old Speccy.

                    Floppies, luxury ! When I were a lad it were cassette tape.
