All the hardcore distribution users out there (Slackware, Arch, Gentoo, Crux,
FreeBSD) like to make fun of YaST.

Ever tried to connect any Linux or BSD desktop to an LDAPS server running Red
Hat Directory Server for authentication?

With YaST it's done in less than 30 seconds in half a dozen mouse clicks, and
it JustWorks(tm).

I know because I'm using it in our local school.

Now try and do the same thing on Debian, FreeBSD, Slackware or one of the
*buntus. You'll get a vague idea of what hell looks like.
