You are absolutely true.  My first Linux was SLS back in 1993.  After
a period of 2.5 years of not using Linux due to limited hard disc
space I started with the SuSE distribution.  Some month later I tried
Red Hat 4.2 and Debian 1.2 and finally stuck with Debian.  It was the
only system that had both the advantages of both a good package system
and a fine-control on configuring the packages.  For example, compare
the SuSE tool Yast which configure ALL the package with a huge
/etc/rc.config file and the package-related /usr/sbin/<package>config
idea found in Debian.


I haven't lost my mind -- it's backed up on tape somewhere.
