Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

'rpm-based distributions'
by AdamW on Tue 2nd Nov 2004 18:41 UTC

@christian, fedora is not all rpm-based distributions. If you run Mandrake you need three repositories to get practically every MDK package available: main, contrib, plf. For SuSE I believe the situation is similar with YaST, but I haven't run it since 7.x so I don't know the details.
