does that really make a diffrence
Thanx for that news man!
how does it matter?? Neways thx 4 the news
The difference is that only One single repository will be there , built in the community on open source tools, assembled into whatever spins the Fedora community desires
users, will need only 1 CD to install the Distro and based on their requirements they would be able to install whatever applications they want from the Repository using an online connection.
They are also revising their RPM style package management system to make it faster and more easy...
they should use dpkg and apt
why re-inventing the wheel with rpm revise?I think all Linux Distros incuding Fedora and RedHat should move to the Debian Way-Use dpkg and apt.the reason is simple-debian way(dpkg+apt with wajig) manges packages better than rpm or most other package management tools used by other distros.this will solve the package compatibliltiy problems and total result will be a better Scenario for Linux Users.I left Fedora and rpm distros for the simple reason of their using pkg manager- rpm
moving from rpm to apt using wajig
There is also a project going on named LSB (Linux Standard Base) project, which has a plan for how to make it easier for both users and developers to install new softwares in Linux...
