If you're serious, it's APT.  You just tell it the program you want to
install, and it will try really hard to install it, and all necessary
support files. None of this "missing library" stuff.  It will even visit
multiple different web repositories to find them.

On the downside, some programs are often a few releases behind Red Hat.

A bit or byte to read or write,
