4 Options for better SUSE install and backup flexibility
I would like to see the same installation flexibility for SUSE as is available for Ubuntu and Fedora.
SUSE uses a wonderfully polished installer, however, the following features are either missing or I am not informed on how to use the following, which I think would be a great addition to SUSE distro and suse studio for the average or even small business user.
1. Install/Remove option as a Windows Application like Ubuntu (wubi.exe like feature).
2. Install easily onto a USB drive using GUI utilities like Ubuntu and Fedora provide (dd is an option but more linux minded rather than a branded GUI utility like LiveCD creator by Fedora or Ubuntu which appeal to the average user or even techno person to save time) - Key being GUI not many command lines for newer users or to save time for even advanced users.
3. Adjust the SUSE Studio to look like the installer so that it easier to choose packages as if one was actually installing the SUSE distro and then add the additional customizations needed, rather than only a package by package option as is currently offered from my usage with SUSE studio. (Fedora Revisor and Reconstructor for Ubuntu). This would prevent alot of package errors from appearing in production saving both development time and server rebuild resources to fix any errors.
4. Provide a backup utility like remastersys that works on SUSE providing a rebuild of a live cd for backup or distribution to friends, family, or colleagues. KIWI might be an option but no where near as simple.
I think these 4 implementations would increase the flexibility of SUSE installations, customization, and distribution.
