Not to say that anything is wrong with Debian, but it is certainly
unfair to compare today's Debian with last year's RedHat. You can
upgrade from RedHat 4.1 to 4.2 all in one shot over just about
any kind of connection you want, including a SMB mount from a
Win95 PC if that's where your CD or FTP'd files happen to be.
It looks like everyone is making a lot of progress.
