    Have you not discovered Debian yet? :-)
    • I'm not going to get into distro flamewars. I've been using Red Hat based distributions since something like Red Hat 4.2 and I can't see any good reason for changing now. I'm aware that many people dislike Red Hat for various reasons, but I'm very happy with it.

      If you want to repackage them for apt then feel free. I won't be doing it.

      And besides, aren't all the Debian users moving to Ubuntu these days :-)

    • Well, I looked at the recent dpkg2 spec, and it seems that they finally are going to integrate quite a number of features that were present in rpm for years...

      (Also, Debian lacks a good depsolver... Ubuntu uses dpkg packages, but comes with smart, which is much better than apt.)

      ((Not endorsing rpm, that said. I know the rpm guts fairly well and I do know what kind of crappy bugs there are in it, and how much poor design decisions plagued it historically...))
