rpm superior to dpkg and apt? No way. I left RedHat months ago for Debian 
GNU/Linux and I haven't looked back. Even rpm and rpmfind doesn't come close 
to apt or dselect. Debian, IMHO, has a lot better package manager than 
RedHat. It might be nice to have a better installer, but this is only gonna 
help the "average" user and the HURD is alpha right now so what I feel we 
need right now is just more developers until the HURD is more mature. I am 
not trying to dicourage you though, if write a nice installation program I'm 
sure even the seasoned developers would appreciate it.
