RPMs are teh devul.

I found an article on DistroWatch entitled Is RPM Doomed? All I can say is that I certainly hope so. At the office I have four servers running RedHat (one 6.1, one 6.2, two 7.0) — all of which are behind on some major security patches because of version conflicts within RPMs. It is too big of a PITA to manage, so I give up.

DebianI’m standardizing on Debian for all of our production machines, a decision I made some months ago after running regan on Debian for just under a year with _no_ issues. apt-get has worked like it _should_. Yes, DEB packaging has flaws (just like all the rest), but none so crippling as to keep me from doing what I need to do, as RPM packages have.
