The love for apt-get

Filed under
Software

the-gay-bar.com: In Linux circles RPM has a really bad reputation, the whole idea of "RPM-hell" (like Windows' DLL-hell) has spread through the years. It's a reputation that was really deserved in the past when getting exactly the right RPM for your distro was a huge pain.
