Flipping the Linux switch: Package management 101 (Download Squad)

.....uhhh, is that because most people are too flipping lazy to really learn how to use the tools that they're working with?

That's why God made Sysadmins. It was in the bylines after the 3rd day.

You know, package management is also about the way in which a Linux distributor creates and manages individual software packages, for individual distributions, on individual architectures, and the way in which a systems administrator may endeavor to create packages from locally managed "stuff".

I'd say that Debian has it down, pretty damned well, at that -- on all counts, there. It ain't just about bias, either. They have a thoroughly solid packaging system.
