heard a lot about, and it sounds really good. like the way you can
just point apt on a bunch of machines at a central machine and keep
the software on them all in sync.
but it's like vi vs emacs vs joe, or pine vs mutt. people stick with
what they know.
that said, apt is just a front-end right? and doesn't it now support
RPMs? apt on redhat systems would be nice...
