I am hoping that someone can provide a quick answer to a quick question:

RPM vs DEB vs Source.

I hate RPM, I used red hat for a while, but the RPM mess really annoyed me.
I am now downloading Gentoo.

My question is, is there a way to install programs other than compiling
source code for Gentoo? are there any other source based distros?

How are game, or software packages installed?

A little confused :O)
