Here's hoping. It's been a long time since you could download and install a rpm or deb and have it run on any distro, it shouldn't be as it is now ....

depends...

most big apps like Openoffice are nearly static compiled (all the relevant libraries are included), so they can run from anywhere.

many rpm (I don't know for deb) are also.

time ago, the computer power was small (486 time) and dynamic apps could save many memory and processor cycles.

now most power is unused on modern computers, memory is enormous (I remember programms for 50 "bytes" (Ti calculator) and saving power is not mandatory, at least in the beginning, when one try an app to see if it fits.

I look with interest to "klick" apps (klick and run package)

the main problem with LSB and optimized application is that they are spread in all the parts of the disk. Do you know in how many place you can find Yast component (try updatedb &, then locate YaST)

for example, I got flash player for mozilla. I could copy it to /opt/semonkey and /opt/Firefox, but still don't know where to copy it for Konqueror...
