General Development The newest version of the popular RPM package manager is now out with improved performance and functionality. But there's a bit of a catch with RPM version 5.0. Linux vendor Red Hat officially considers RPM 5.0 a project fork. "RPM5 is a fork of RPM, and is not related to RPM.org," Daniel Riek, Product Manager Red Hat Enterprise Linux told InternetNews.com. "Neither Red Hat or Fedora are involved in RPM5, and have no current plans to use it. Red Hat remains committed to the main RPM.org releases and development."

I agree that Fedora does have that problem sometimes, but I have had a similar experience running Kubuntu. More than once I have tried to download updates when notified only for apt to tell me that a package is broken or will not be installed because it WILL break another package. My opinion is not that is it the package manager's fault so much as it is the package maintainers.
