I like printool of redhat. So I used alien to debianized that thing. I
installed and it works(gui), but have not tested it yet.
Anyway, to comment on the original post... I tested/evaluated all major
linux distros. And Debian came on top.
Sure, there are many rpm's around. But it's not made by the core
redhat people. So quality of the rpm's varies. Yes, there are not many
.debs around... but who needs it? there are literally thousands of .debs
made by the core debian developers. So the quality is extremely good.
If you really want an easy distro, try to get hold of the upcoming corel
Linux distro. Wait... it's based on Debian!
