Don't think anyone said it was superior...they do the same basic job, I
think in many ways there's more importance in the packaging and
distribution philosophy, which maybe means Debian concentrate more on
being able to update through apt than Mandrake does through urpmi. Let's
face it - it's not actually a very difficult concept, the methodology is
simple, it's the application of it that's important.
