    Just curious. What do you think of Fedora’s PackageDB: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb ?

    Pretty cool. But not as good. Where is the one click install option?

    Instead of designing a distro specific solution, Fedora is working on packagekit which provides a browser plugin that has the same functionality.

    That is just great! By the way, Cyberorg told me about packagekit in one of my previous posts (http://debayan.wordpress.com/2008/10/08/linux-india/#comments).

    Something interesting for you.

    (i) PackageKit’s catalogs: http://www.packagekit.org/pk-faq.html#catalogs
    (ii) Problems of 1-click install: http://www.packagekit.org/pk-faq.html#1-click-install

    PackageKit is probably a better “engineering” approach, but at the end of the day, 1-click-install is something that makes people leave fedora and switch to opensuse. For people in my college atleast, this is the truth.
