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.

@anonymous re rpm vs. deb

Fixing a corrupted rpm database is pretty easy - rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__* then rpm --rebuilddb. The only times I've ever had corrupt rpm dbs have been when I killed or ctrl-c'ed package installations for one (bad) reason or another, anyway.
