| When people talk about RPM dependency hell, I really have no idea what

| record straight:
|
| Warning ahead: please note that I’m not gonna discuss Debian vs. Red Hat, but

Another Day Another Distro - Part 9 - Fedora 8

,----[ Quote ]
| If you want a web server, file server or any other kind of server really
| Fedora is a great option I think, maybe it would even work on the desktop for
| some people but for me I'm afraid it didn't. With distributions like Ubuntu,
| PCLinuxOS and Mandriva around which do everything for you I don't see many
| novice users choosing Fedora.
