Of course we all know that linux is great and a reliable system but the latest
focus is trying to get new users to adopt it. Is it possible from a developer
standpoint to integrate a system including packages like alien for deb etc,
that would allow SUSE to user either deb or rpm packages or better yet
introduce a brand new file type say .lnx for linux (easier since the intro for
SUSE build service) to begin a movement that would allow packages to be cross
compatible between linux systems so long as the kernel version is suppported?
This would bring a unifying and innovative solution to a common issue for linux
systems. Just an idea, I would like to see comments on its possibility.
