RE: 'The highly unusual arrangement'
At the very beginning, when Fedora was Fedora 10 and Ubuntu was Ubuntu 8.10 and both had joint and successful projects the arrangement was pretty usual, but gradually with the time it became 'more and more unusual' reaching the state of 'highly unusual' because of the circumstances.
The launching of the chaos started with hplip with the aerobatics of its binary driver plugin installed by a custom made package manager, after that came the MS fonts compiled from a server, and then the cherry of the cake - the i486 compilation of adobe reader. What chaos could be greater than that - only the installation of WINE.
From that moment I start understanding that arrangement is nothing and chaos is everything. Wine should go, and so shall do some other things.
After that a time came when Fedora excluded GIMP from its desktop, and the list continues. The thesaurus of the desktop was X-rated, and so I installed the K-thesaurus (only) from the KDE in the Gnome environment ...
RE: 'The package managers'
As for the package managers, I use only yum and rpm (and nothing else), and this is because yum extension ever since Fedora 10 (when it was wonderful), becomes more and more Y-rated with the time.
Anyway, I am not complaining - the linux version is stable, has rich functionality and is pretty fast with the new gnome-desktop and nautilus upgrade from Fedora 13.
Apt-get is gone and gem is on schedule.
If you have any other questions or answers - don't hesitate.
