I think apt ought to be close to the top of any list. You can change one word in /etc/apt/sources.list, do apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade and walk away while apt gets you a totally new system. I don't know of any other distro or os that can do that. -- Bud Rogers <email@example.com> http://www.sirinet.net/~budr All things in moderation. And not too much moderation either.
