I tried Foresight Linux a while ago but it has one main problem - packages. There is no way to convert RPMs or Debian Packages to the Conary Package format. How do you install OpenOffice.org 2 Beta?

Yes, I had trouble with "Conary" too.I like the idea, and I am watching the distro, but I am really enjoying Ubuntu.
