comment What are the pros/cons of deb vs. rpm?
@Jeach: yes. the difference is not in the file format (very similar), or tools nowadays, but rather in past opinions and how people manage the environment surrounding both formats. I'm mostly using openSUSE and Debian nowadays

comment uwsgi install in Debian 6 (Squeeze) wants to upgrade libc6 and initscripts
Seems like a good option to consider, if all fails. It seems doable especially with uwsgi. I do like to try the testing solution first, letting the package manager doing it's job. :)

Thanks for the detailed explaination of /etc/apt/preferences and offering some options. I'll look into this

comment What distributions have rolling releases?
If every update brings new packages, including a kernel/glibc/whatever, I would call it a rolling release. If they have a fixed base system, it's not.

comment “free-as-in-speech” vs. "free-as-in-beer”
@Renjith G: Those "beer" and "speech" are just examples that people (at least in the western world) get, because they reference commonly used expressions. People associate "free speech" with freedom or "freedom of speech", and "free beer" with taking benefit of something without paying.

comment Do we have an undo in Linux?
@mahmoudsakr You're completely right, I missed that point. I don't have these commands aliased either. Aliasing them as a different command seems like the most sane option!

comment How can I (and should I) use my Linux file server as a Time Machine backup server for my Macs?
+1 for this. My home NAS (the QNAP 239) has built-in support for TimeMachine based on the same solution! It works really sweet, and MacOS detected the timemachine drive without any problems.
