Yes, it all might help the RH/Fedora folks abandon rpm and standardize on
debs instead. This message from ESR really rubs it in. I've always used
deb systems and was only recently totally, I mean totally, blown away that
is was not possible to upgrade a CentOS 3 something system to the latest
version without reinstalling from scratch. That is absolutely pathetic in
the 21st century... all the more so since there is a much better
alternative. And to think the LSB depends on RPM!!!
