I've used SuSE since about version 8 I believe. I like YaST (both GUI and CL 
version which is damn close to the GUI-nice work SuSE devs!). I've never had 
a problem with the repositories for doing online updates. I've added 
packman's repositories to get things like commercial DVD viewing working and 
to be able to rip MP3's in K3B (default SuSE install doesn't install LAME) 
again without any problems.

Not sure what you would be having problems with. I typically go with the 
default online repository. I think I've switched it maybe once or twice 
between versions.
