Well, like most administrators, I'm lazy which means I'd prefer not to
have to learn a whole lot of new stuff like package management
eccentricities, etc.

I haven't used an RPM-based system in maybe 10 years, and I have to
admit I'm not exactly a Debian/APT expert, but at least I've come to
know what to expect.

I've been lucky enough to avoid any OS crashes, so if it's as stable
as Debian Etch/Lenny/Squeeze, then I'm happy.

Plus I can complain to jfclere if it doesn't work. :)
