i never got really convinced about debians package manager system, and
rpm's made me tear my hair off (well, not literally). so, i installed
freebsd and found that its pgk managering is the best ever. if you have
enough space on your hard drive, you can install everything so, that you
say 'make install' and it fetches everything you need from the web
straight. debian does about the same thing, but the good thing in fbsd is
that you don't have to worrie about lib-troubles, like in linux quite
often. works like a train.


Keep your words smart, and you won't need a big buffer.
