Re: Debian vs Red Hat??? I need info.

I agree, rpm is not a piece of crap.  deb packages are a lot harder to create for the novice users.  There is not much documentation to help in this area either.  Also, when updates are released .debs are usually the last to be released (because someone usually
has to hack an .rpm or something similar)  When security is an issue, .rpms are usually quicker to be released and thus should never be discounted.  It is fast becoming the standard package system in the industry.
