The problem with Linux packaging in large organizations – Network World

One of the challenges of implementing and utilizing Linux across a large organization—an organization where there are many different people with significantly different computing needs—is … packaging.

Seriously. Packaging is a big problem.

Just as an example:

Let’s say you are in charge of IT for a 1,000-person organization. Your server needs dictate that you’ll need (or at least likely want) a server-oriented Linux distribution with some sort of paid support contract. Easy enough. You can choose Red Hat Enterprise or SUSE Linux Enterprise. Server needs met.
