|Linux: Rpm Vs Deb by blackweaver(m): 8:55am On Apr 03, 2011|
ok for the core linux enthusiasts out there, which package manager do you prefer: rpm or deb and thus do you prefer rpm-based distros or deb-based distros
pls posts your opinions

well having not used a rpm based distro at all, at least not more than a day (that being fedora), i wouldnt know.
but batting blind, id say debian. that is a very stable sound package management system, rock solid, what would redhat's have over it?
and are u thinking of starting ur own distro?

@4llerbe about the .debs outnumbering the .rpms i'm not quite so sure - ok maybe you're right though ill say most of them came are based on ubuntu; however if you look at the distros that are used in the enterprise , most of them are rpm based; distros like redhat, suse are more popular on the enterprise than debian, ubuntu etc.
But on a personal note i prefer .debs myself, ive notied that when i'm updating my packages, .deb distros download all the packages before installing while rpm download and install alternately - very annoying on this not so fast connection
