Put some debian in your mouth: 24 hours of Ubuntu vs Fedora

I had forgotten how nice apt was in relation to yum. I mean yum is great, I could never build a package manager like rpm; let alone a utility as versatile and helpful as what yum is. I may have the capacity to build something that sucks right around the level of up2date 0.6.  I had managed to keep that machine running fedora for years, beginning with fedora core 2. I had never reinstalled, or performed fresh installs during that time, I just kept modifying the repos, running yum update, and fixing major issues as they came up. That machine has gone through a lot with me; but it has always been a dev machine. From my first install of Asterisk that I would later use to build Viatalk, to being my test machine while studying for the RHCE. I appreciate what the community has given me. Without open source software I wouldn’t be a system admin. I would never have found the interest. Maybe I would be a cop.
Ubuntu as a distro feels very by the people/ for the people. Things that I didn’t expect to work like playing mp3’s out of the box did with very little work on my end. I tried it for a day, and just went right back home. To fedora 9.
