Grrr. Deal with it ! You touched a raw nerve for me here.
Having gone through the UNIX wars of the 80's and 90's,
all the while watching Microsoft win as the UNIX vendors
waged bloody internecine wars I will *never* forgive the
people who refused to standardize on rpm and thus split
the application vendor base for Linux.

Yes it's technically inferior to apt-get and friends. It
just happens to be the standard packaging mechanism. It's
also GPL code. If you don't like it *FIX IT*, don't

Sorry Chris :-). You really touched one of my hot
buttons :-) :-). Nothing personal... :-).
