Bogus introductory paragraph

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on January 05, 2005 05:07 AM
Comparing apt-get to rpm is apples to oranges. The more 'apt' (heh) comparison would be comparing dpkg to rpm, and on those grounds I personally think rpm comes out ahead.

The declaration in the introductory paragraph about apt-get's superiority over rpm-based distros was accurate perhaps a few years back, but with the advent of tools such as yum and apt4rpm, is just not true anymore.
