In my opinion should every Linux distribution use apt-get or a port of
it for their package system. There is nothing as easy as installing
packages by apt-get or searchin with apt-cache.

I saw the apt-get port for RPM for RedHat from Connectiva. I was sitting
on a RedHat, and for the first look, it felt like a debian.... but only
for the first look.

But hey, it is a beginning. But there are something, what should be
solved. RPM!=RPM, so I don't know, what about using apt-get with
SuSE/Mandrake ...  :)
