Hi All,

I know that there are various package formats in current linux

redhat, mandrake, suse - rpm
debian, [kx]ubuntu - deb

Everybody knows that debian's package management is far better than rpm.

Redhat nerver had good package management.
Suse is fighting with zen and yast package management.

Everything in debian is free.
Why redhat & suse just adopt .deb and debian's package management system ?
Ubuntu is good example of this strategy which is very much successful.
Instead of doing this redhat and suse are putting efforts for developing
good package management and upgrade system.

Any views ?
