1. I'm currently off-line FC5 wise using the PCMCIA card in the IBM  
X20 to get dapper which by the way has just killed X "What you gain on  
the swings you loose on the roundabouts"

2. Just what are these "Packages" that cannot be got? is that some  
sort of 'grey argument'? a bit like saying "I just cant get the food I  
want from Tescos like I can from Sainsburys"?

I think whats meant by that statement is "I cant get ready rolled  
packages" with stuff like SuSE you have to roll your own with many  
apps that are not main stream.

IMHO Debian is a very mature, stable distro but is as exciting as  
watching paint dry plus you do need a good level of knowledge to get  
the best out of it thats why Ubuntu intregues me I look at it as  
Debian with go fast stripes painted down the side.

I think you hit the nail on the head earlier, you always feel at home  
with the version you use how many people have started a new job and  
found themselves saying "At my old place we did this"? its just the  
same really.

I honestly dont think (at the moment) theres much differance between  
any of them including Ubuntu I really think its just personal choice.
