I don't agree that this would be a better solution as it would not be 
obvious to users which options are available and having to always open 
the combobox to select a different choice is very user unfriendly.

The optimal solution would be to have yes and no buttons, just like in the 
newt frontend.

An IMHO somewhat acceptable alternative solution is possibly to use radio 
buttons:
