YaST Survey Started

October 1st, 2007 by

We have just published a survey on YaST, our systems management and installation framework.

If you use any of the distributions openSUSE, SUSE Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, I encourage you to participate in our survey to support us improving YaST. The survey will be online until mid November and the results will be published on openSUSE.org.

Click here to take the survey.

By the way, if you would like to know more about YaST, visit the openSUSE YaST wiki page.

Thanks for participating in the survey – and a big THANK YOU to Anica to design this together with quite a couple of different stakeholders in YaST,
