Me too, and also tried RedHat recently, but not for a long time.

That's why I'm here, quite new to Debian. Ok, there are some problems with
dselect (going to be replaced anyway I see), but the chance of knowing about
dependencies and not only installing but also removing or upgrading *each*
package is of great importance to me. It is just a very good thing which
needs a great design effort (and possibly some debugging), as for instance
any C++ "ambitious"  class hierarchy. The taste it gives to me is of a great
quality Linux distribution.
