    apt or yum


    Fedora users,

    Can anyone tell me which is better between apt and yum? I've been using Debian for over a year and while I could never use any other distro for a server, I'm looking into using it for a workstation. It looks very friendly and easier to use.

    Choices

    What can I say, I think everyone has their own opinion. I'd love to use apt since I know the syntax of it already but I'm wondering if yum just might have better dependency resolvers and etc. After all, I think the more stable front-end to installing rpms will most likeyl win me over. I just may have to install both to see exactly which is better but has anyone used yum at all?
