Originally posted by Youssef_C What distro has the highest number of packages ?
Roughly about the same number, but Debian hits the score. Debian comes with over 15490 packages (precompiled software that is bundled up in a nice format for easy installation on your machine) — all of it free.
Originally posted by ctkroeker Probably, and then I'm guessing would be RPM?
not necessarily at all.. just because rpm is a popular format doesn't mean they are native to that distro.. suse rpms are not interchangable with redhat rpms.... suse actually doesn't have an extremely large amount of native software, however it does have most software that people need to run a fully function desktop..
