openSUSE - fast becoming my favourite Linux distro on the client - doesn't seem to upgrade itself through its own configured software repositories.
Do we know why this is the case? Is it a money-making thing where they can then sell upgrade CDs / DVDs?
I mean, pretty much every other Linux upgrades itself through the normal software repositories. For example, Ubuntu can upgrade itself from 10.4 to 10.10 just through the normal software package upgrade procedure. Why must it be a huge procedure to upgrade openSUSE?
Any knowledge or ideas appreciated. Thank you.
