Does anyone here have good experience of both Redhat and Debian
package managers.
A long time ago I was on Redhat, but ran into "update headaches"
around dependencies.
I now use debian and ubuntu mostly, and I have never had "update
headaches" with them.
Is the debian package manager just better than redhat's, or was I just
unlucky with Redhat?
