    Probably a lot less.

    But you can use Debain's apt on Fedora so it shouldn't matter.

    so if a package exists for debian, will it run on fedora 3? how would one know?

    is it always true that a package in debian will not work for fedora 3? I guess i don't know enough about the differences of these 2 os and how that would affect the packages.
