Right. Almost everything else has been mentioned, and I want the inside
running on something completely different.
Want some homework, Jason? ;) First figure out who I'm talking about:
* They employ Rik van Riel (coming to linux.conf.au, btw).
* You said you liked rpm-based distros. This is.
* They wrote xf86cfg, the new, purdy XFree86 4 configurator.
* They added rpm support to apt.
* They give a toss about internationalisation.
* They are Brazilian. 'Nuff said.
