I think a lot of rpm's you see out there suck. One of the reasons I dig
Debian so much is the .deb packages are so great, and because they (generally)
(un)install themselves really well. The same can't be said of rpm, I think.
All I know is I was pissed off when I was using .rpms with Redhat, and when I
started using dpkg on debian, I was very pleased. And still am.

It does annoy me also when you can't get the latest whizz bang version of
e.g. Eterm, but at the same time it's a great incentive for us to get up off
our butts and start maintaining them ourselves.
