I fully agree, Seth. It has ever been incorrect to compare rpm with apt.
On the other side it is exactly this comparison people come over with
when there is the naming of Red Hat Linux and now for a while Fedora and
Debian on the other side. Red Hat as a linux distribution is still in
the heads of many, many people (at least I can say that for people I use
to speak with here in Germany) as the "rpm dependency hell". Thats sad.
So I think it would be good if we would place yum more into the focus
when promoting Fedora.
