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.

@AdamW (RE: RPM vs. Deb.
by Anonymous on Wed 3rd Nov 2004 04:04 UTC

The one major problem I've had with RPMs vs Deb packages is in fact the database structure that RPM uses... I have several times (Can't recall which versions, I believe one was Mandrake 9, and the other was a very old redhat... probably 5.1 or so) That somehow had a corrupted database, and I couldn't find a fix for it for the life of me.... once I had that happen with Debian, but it was easy to fix the problem.
