Re(2): Linux Foundation launches killer development tool

It doesn't make a shred of difference how many package managers there are - as long I can get the software I want on my package manager. I use Ubuntu (.deb) which has a great package manager - why should I change to use, for instance *.rpm - or why should someone using Red Hat change to *.deb if what they currently have is working?

Packaging up software is relatively easy - and if software is popular, it generally makes it to the major formats. Is this really such a big issue?

Uniform paths would be nice though...
