Whether RPM or Deb (or whatever else for that matter), if it works, it works.
If it's trivial, why complain? I have good experiences with both. Ubuntu is
ahead only because I have not burned all the SuSE CD's. YaST handles RPM's
and it keeps requiring them. Other than that, both are reliable front-ends
to package installation and they truly obviate the need for ./configure,
make, sudo make install.
