Ok, Rick, Extra Expletive Deletives don't add any value to your message. Sure
those sorts of folks make you want to shoot 'em because of their attitudes.
But you can't expect to change their attitudes by jumping into the cesspool.

You are 100& right. I have my hands full with my job and I can appreciate the
fact that they take time to support this _super_ OS!

No arguments about that!

My 2 cents worth. I just helped a _new_ linux person with setting up his
machine just the other day. He chose to install RED HAT distribution. And to
make a long story short, RED HAT _does_not_ keep track of dependencies. It let
him install packages without requiring the dependent modules to be installed as
well. After I fixed it for him, I can say that inspite of Dselect & Dpkg
difficulties, I still prefer Debian (no contest!) I'd like to see a
"applications" oriented version of "dselect". I just may write it myself.
Where's that book on Perl..... 8-)
