  For sure, making Debian incompatible with RedHat. All apps in Debian
  3.0 can be recompiled using gcc-3.2 and ported to Debian 3.1. But
  there are a lot of software out there that you cannot recompile and
  it's compiled only for RedHat. Breaking that compatability leaves out
  people using such software (and I'm not talking about
  'kinda-bimba-bumba' software, buy important apps)
