Linux After reading a discussion on DistroWatch asking if users were happy with their current distribution, I noticed a common thread of those who have had similar experiences as myself with juggling various Linux distributions. Like myself, they feel many Linux distributions are great, but no one quite feels like home. None of them quite fit the bill and they may even begin to think that every OS sucks.

Package Management
by KaZeKaMi on Wed 11th Feb 2004 08:54 UTC

I'm using Fedora Core 1 since its release, and I'm totally satisfied with it.

I didn't test yum, because since RedHat 7.3 I used to use apt4rpm. And I think apt is a great tool ! I know that in Free Sofwares, there's a place for everyone. So why not another packages manager... But reinventing the wheel may be a loss of time, don't you think ?

So, what are the pros for pacman ? Is apt not enough efficient ?

By the way, I'll give a try to Arch, because I've heard of it 2 years ago and it seemed already very interesting.

PS : sorry for my english, you know, I'm just a froggy ;)
