I have never run RH.  But I am currently helping a friend of mine
configure a RH machine (mainly by running alien --to-rpm on .deb
packages ;-).

I noticed that there are umpteen packages (of several versions) of a
particular piece of software (like ssh, smail etc.) packaged by several
people.  This makes me dislike running a RH system.  Choosing which RPM
to install is so difficult.  It is so much easier with Debian.
