Well as long as we're going to be predisposed to hate some distro, I
refuse to allow myself to ever like debian! ebuilds maybe, but the .deb
and .rpm are almost 100% equivalent, as judged by the fact that all the
nice debian tools work with RPM also (and almost any package manager).
And as I approach my midlife crisis (well the age 30 crisis), I just
don't think I can afford to spend time compiling ebuilds. I might die
of old age at any time.
