No, experience. I installed the kde-redhat packages on my
playground-box, after some days there was an upgrade to gtk in the
Fedora updates repositories which horrible brake things. I sweared like
a trooper, spent an hour deleting all the kde-redhat packages and
reinstalling the Fedora packages and decided it was a "tried once, rated
as bad" experience.

Did you ever realize how much text fits in eighty columns? If you now consider
that a signature usually consists of up to four lines, this gives you enough
space to spread a tremendous amount of information with your messages. So seize
this opportunity and don't waste your signature with bullshit nobody will read.
