    Hrm haven't tried Fedora since the first release. It's probably much different now

    Is it just me, or does anyone also hate rpm distro's? I really hate that package management system. apt (debian/ubuntu) is far more flexible. I heard other good things about PacMan too.

    That is just my two cents.

    But I do like Fedora's color scheme better. I'm definitely no poop-color fan!

    RPM is an ancient package manager no longer in common use. YUM, urpmi, and zypper have swept its last dregs away.

    I personally hate APT with a passion. Tazpkg and Pacman are both excellent.

    Any reason for your loathing of the apt system -- other than its a royal pain in the butt to make debs?

    I also dislike the output from the CLI interface. It's unnecessarily ugly and confusing.

    fedora doesn't have a package like "ubuntu-restricted-extras", and a lot of non-free software are not in the repos. So if you want to install codecs, flash, ms fonts etc. you should find the repo containing them and install them one by one. At least that was the case when I tried fedora 9.
    But also fedora has the biggest community repo: http://rpmfusion.org/

    In terms of actually using the system, package management is different. I have found this site http://polishlinux.org/choose/compar...distro2=Ubuntu that does give a comparative list of differences between the two - I don't really know how much truth is there, but an interesting read anyway.

    Well usually a repo contain many non-free software you need, it is not like you need a different repo for every piece of software you want to install.
